    Really nice. Used half the garlic only as I was making them for kiddies who don't enjoy spicy food. Next time I might cook the onions slightly because even though they were very finely chopped, they were still crunchy which was nice, but not so much for children. This recipe is definitely a lunch box keeper.  -  20 May 2012
