    Something else. Sorry, forgot to mention the ginger! You'll need to put 1 -2 teaspoons of chopped fresh ginger in at the same time as the garlic! :-)  -  27 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    A really easy way to use up left overs. I changed a couple of things slightly to adapted to my store cupboard.  -  22 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
