For a vegetarian version, omit first 4 ingredients. This dish is much better the next day as it gives time for the flavours to blend.

Loved the variety of VEG. in this dish. I found the flavour lacking though. I used coconut milk instead of pinapple juice. I wished the spices were more present in each bite.
Loved it! Took some of it to work and shared with a coworker, who immediately after tasting asked for the recipe. This not only tasted great, but it also freezes quite well. Thank you for posting this nice addition to my collection of "Make again" recipes!
