Quick one-skillet meal. Great with rice or bread. Adjust the amount of chilli powder to get the level of heat you want. For the garnish we used kung pao chillies because that's what's growing in our back yard right now, but you can use whatever chillies you want. Please note that I have classified this as "Hungarian" because there's not an option for Romanian and Hungarian seemed like the nearest alternative.
