  • Could have been so much

    Could have been so much better. Disappointed with the timing instructions on this recipe. The egg needed more than 10 minutes rather than 5. The sauted onion, garlic and chilli were well underdone with only 2 minutes cooking time. After dishing up the meal to our dinner guests we had the embarrasment of having to empty all plates into a wok and re-cook it on the stove, because the undercooked onion overpowered the meal. After rescuing the disasterous start to the evening, the taste overall was pretty good.

    I have to say this receipe is the worst one I have tried so far.  Apologies, however have to be honest as after tasting by several family members it went straight in the bin.
