I really appreciate the review. Excellent combination of ingredients. I would recommend dusting the shrimp beforehand with some garam marsala and perhaps cooking the vegetables in order according to texture so that you do not overcook the peppers and undercook the mushrooms. It was a fantastic meal!
We loved it!!lots of flavour and just the right amount of heat. I had to make it without the water chestnuts, didn't have any in and I used regular mushrooms and parsley instead of cilantro. Next time I will be sure to have all the proper ingredients, even so I can't imagine it would be any better than it was this time! Thanks for posting!
