“This is a flavorful, spicy recipe. Not sure how authentic it is, but it's delicious! I created this scaled down recipe because I live alone, and it's nice to not have to make 10 servings. I like it with less liquid like this, just enough to create a sort of spicy "gravy". You can use more depending on what consistency you like. Try serving it with a cool cucumber/onion salad.”
