Outstanding! I thought the interplay of all the ingredients was just great, and well worth an extra trip to the store. The only complaint I had was that there wasn't enough of it! The recipe isn't clear whether the chilies should be fresh or dry, so I used four dried red chilies plus a few fresh green Thai chilies. Worked out about right for me.
