Wish I could give ten stars! I just loved the combo of the garlic and ginger with this, and I think the time spent "frying" the tomato paste made a big difference. Simply said, this recipe is better than the sum of its parts. I will most definitely be making this again! Made for CQ4 play, Team Happy Campers. Thanks for posting this - it's going straight into my Favorites! UPDATE 1/2018: I LOVE this recipe! It's good hot or cold, and I've made it countless times since CQ4. Goes well with many different types of cuisines! PS: I double the garlic and ginger, use a can of diced tomatoes (slightly drained). Yum!!!
