    This recipe sounds delicious but many would be unable to eat it because of "hot" ingredients especially if they become more vulnerable to indigestion problems.

    As a masterchef just leave out the hot bits Chilli,but add smaller amount of ginger just to flavour. Top with Yoghurt or sour cream to make it more creamy. Cheers.

    This is delicious, very tasty. The ginger makes the recipe and the taste was not overpowering to my taste. I had it with and without the chilli, it is really just there as a form of seasoning, and both ways was great.
