Hi. Greetings. We tried this recipe on Sunday, 10th April & it was really fantastic. More is for me because I prefer recipes where no grinding is involved. It makes it easy even for a startup person to prepare this. Your recipes, as usual, are wonderful. Thank you very much. Regards. S.P. Vasudevan

Instead of paste I minced the ginger, garlic and chilli as its very difficult to grind if the recipe says 1/2 a tsp. from the menu given but tastes excellent.
