    One craves for spicy things, which we call "chat-pata" in India -- which is why we tend to go in for fast food. It hink this is an excellent recipe to dip into a snack without adding unwholesome calories.. satisfies your tongue, and serves your purpose... - 8/10/10

    Sounds very good. One question: Should the instructions have read to cook until 1/4 cup of the liquid remains, rather than cooking until the liquid is, in effect, reduced by 1/4 cup? - 6/28/11

    This is very good. I used Parsley instead of Cilantro as my husband WILL NOT eat Cilantro in anything. - 8/13/12

    Is there any liquid that can be used rather than the cider vinegar - that just does not agree with me! And preferably no oils either. - 8/24/10

  • I love this recipe and choose to use parsley, not the cilantro. I also tried using jalapenos instead of the banana peppers for a bite in it's taste. A small amount of finely chopped green pepper is another good addition to this. - 8/13/13
