“Adaptation of a recipe from the BBC website, I have made it easier to cook using more common ingredients. I really enjoyed it but please look at the ingredients before cooking - it certainly won't be a 'crowd pleaser' and has a quite strong and distinctive taste. It serves one as a large dish, or two as an entree / light meal.”
