  1. I have made this twice and my hubby and I love it. I don't add screw pine essence as I don't know what it is, i omit the raisins due to personal preference and I add chillies to make it spicy. My hubby is Bangladeshi so it was a pleasant surprise for him the first time I made it. I recommend it!
