WOOOOOOWEEEEE! This is VERY HOT and SPIIIICY! I halved the recipe and used two major red chilies, and used 1 1/2 green chilies. I did everything as stated except that I used cashew nuts instead of peanuts, and added a Tablespoon of minced onion. This is absolutely delicious! We will be making this again (with more water/juice on the side for cooling down the fire in our mouths!!! hahaha). Thanks for this recipe, Fay!!! :D It's SO good!
