      This was a delicious recipe! I had run out of green chilies so used one little red one instead. Also, my dried red chilies are quite large and first when I made this using four of them the heat just overpowered all the other flavours in the dish. So, the second time I only used two dried chilies to allow the other layers of flavour to shine through. This is the first time I have ever used curry leaves in my cooking, and I really like them. Thanks for broadening my culinary horizons love!
