    This recipe was very tasty and easy to make. I put it all together early and then kept the casserole dish in the refrigerator until cooking time. The only thing I had to buy was the sambal oelek and it was at the grocery store for $1.79. It's great that several other recipes use this chili paste, so the jar will be used up eventually.

    Bit hard to find sambel olek in any part of England outside of London and possibly Manchester, miles away. Never heard of the stuff, neither had my big supermarket! Will have to find something else that isn't so obscure.

    You can also use any chili paste that you can find locally, as noted in the list of ingredients. Some people also like chili garlic sauce or chili garlic paste. Anything that will give a little kick of heat will work well in this recipe.
