Bataboom batabay!!! This is what DH had to say!!! I stir fried the leek and then added all the ingredients as per the recipe. I substituted soy and wocestershire sauce for the fish sauce (1/2 tblsp each) and added fresh red plump chillies (we are getting them now, they are sweet and pungent) Oooooooof!!! DH was lovin' it and so was moi!!!! I seeved it over noodles and took a bow on your behalf :) Fay
