The measurements were hard to follow but I tired it anyway. It was just ok. I when out an purchased a cook book with a Rendang recipe in it to make sure I get it right the next time.

i have just tried this at tampopo in leeds uk. Ita just not right. It tastes like something you should smell, not eat, it tastes like a perfume. I tried the nonya chicken & lime curry which was much better.xx
