    Hi Ronke..you must be a mind-reader! Here I am wondering what kind of sauce to make with my available ingredients and I check your website and find this!๐Ÿ˜Š Thank you so much for sharing!!! P.S. Can I increase the quantities for a large amount of sauce and add a substitute peas for green peppers? Don’t really like peas. Thanks so much again!

      Haha, mind reader indeed. Yes, you can increase the quantity. You may use any vegetable you like in the sauce.
