Hi there. I was wondering whether you would like to link this in to Food on Friday: Chillies and other spicy stuff. This is the link. You did some time ago link in a great dish to Food on Friday: Asian Food. I now realize that I haven't been following your blog. Sorry about that. I have signed up to follow now. It would be great if you followed Carole's Chatter back. Have a super week.

Just tried ur recipe! It came out very well. I did a little modification by adding very little chilli powder and 4 to 5 spoons of sugar to it . It tasted very well and all of them in my family liked it. Thanks a lot for a great recipe...
