I cooked this last night. I had trouble finding garlic paste and ginger paste at the market so I had to make my own using ground garlic and ground ginger. I also had to leave out the Dry Mango Powder because I could not find it at the local Publix supermarket. However, thank you for the recipe. I had never tasted this dish before, so not having anything to go on as a reference for taste, I found this to be very, very good.

Definitely a very easy to make and very delicious meal in a very short period of time.
