Hi SF

Thank you, thank you :)

That's nice, now you have a Plum Sauce Mock 'Meat' Dish :)

I had that yesterday and took a picture of it.

In fact, minus the mock stuff and some slight modications, we can have a different type of achar - plum sauce achar that go with veg. chicken rice or as a cold dish. When i am free, going to test it out. cheers :)
