  • “Simple and easy – that’s what I like.I added wholegrain mustard instead of Dijon, because I like the “nutty” taste.Has quite a diatinct taste of its own, and is better served with food that is not so overpowering, so that each dish compliments one anoher, rather than competing against eachother.”

  • “Very easy to prepare and liked the taste…! Please share more of such quickies that score great on the taste as well..! I also sprinkled chopped leaves of fresh coriander before serving this dish !”

  • “This was good but I was hoping for a little more flavour – I found that it just didn’t coat very well even with letting the water evaporate.I served with cajun salmon and potatoes and it was a nice side dish.Thanks for posting.”
