      This is an excellent recipe. I had no cayenne, so I used ground pequin peppers. Yummy. Had with Chucumber (I used Chucumber (Indian Cucumber Salad)).

      Brilliant ..... delicious .... need I say more ?? I added king prawns to the mix too and it's delightful. Should think it's nice with chicken as well. Although I substituted Cilantro for Corriander (if you like it)
