Another wonderful dish. Again, very simple to make and so delicious my boyfriend licked his bowl! (This is becoming a common theme with your recipes!). I didn't add the lime juice or cilantro at the end and it was great without. We served on rice seasoned with tumeric and onion flakes. Made for PAC Spring 2013
