    Altered ingredient amounts. this was great, don't worry about the water, I added 4 tbsp and had loads of water when it finished. the trick is to cook at a low temp, it takes a little longer but it was gorgeously tender.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Great easy fast dish. Didn't have the nutmeg or coriander and it still turned out great. Will make it on nights we need something fast and tasty!  -  18 Jul 2008
