A recipe like this, is absolutely brilliant for me... a single working man (who likes to cook his own meals) a very big Thank-You! Just wish, you had let the reader know HOW


Came out very well... You will have to add little bit of tomato ketchup at the end and it tastes brillient with the tang and sweetness.
