    Amazing flavours. No galangal avail here so doubled the ginger & added some fresh ground black pepper. Awesome results and although has lots of ingredients, most were in my pantry (typical of a TMX user?!) Had TMX boiled rice already in my freezer so eliminated that step. Fantastic - will make as often as my partner will allow 😋
