      I had all the ingredients so I made this for lunch. Sounded good but a bit unusual with the coconut milk so I only made half the recipe and did use the optional hot pepper. It's quick to make and had a good flavor (after squeezing in fresh lemon juice), but the texture after blending really put me off. Mine turned out slimy, the way okra tends to do. It might be better to use a potato masher rather than a blender. I didn't totally puree mine, actually it looked just like your picture. Not wanting to waste good ingredients I did have this for lunch but it's not something I would fix again. I give this 3 stars because it is what I would consider to be a healthy dish but definitely for someone with the appreciation for such health benefits.
