  1. Unless I’m missing something, I’m not seeing the “dried chilis” in the ingredient list although it’s referenced in the cooking instructions. (?)

    1. Good catch! I think I added some dried red chili flakes to add some extra heat, but it’s optional depending on if you like spicy food or not 🙂
