Very nice. I used 3 garlic cloves instead of 5-6 and used 3 small chillies to make the dish milder for the little ones. The dish had plenty of flavour and was just spicy enough with the 3 small chillies. If I was cooking just for adults I would probably add another chilli. We served it in lettuce cups. I will definitely cook this again - probably next week if my family has a say in it!
