This was a great recipe. I used ginger garlic paste from the Indian grocery instead of fresh garlic and ginger because I was out and it was a great substitute. I also used chili garlic sauce in place of chili flakes, I could even double or triple the chili and it would still be really good (and I'm not a big one for heat) but I didn't because I wanted my littles to eat it. Also added steamed edamame. Great addition. double the recipe for a yummy dinner AND meal prep.
