    Too much sugar and hot peppers for this amount. Other than that - great stuff!!! I had to adjust my second prep a little, perhaps because of variation in ingredients and personal taste.

    My family loves the Indian recipes from Fine Cooking - Chicken Tikki Masala, Naan and Samosas - and this Cilantro Dip is an outstanding accompaniment!
