I couldn't find ajinomoto so I had to omit it but the dish was quite tasty. Although it doesn't serve four people, not even close.

I just wanted to know, how much tomato sauce do we use and what is the consistency of the prepared dish, was there a lot of gravy or was it a bit thicker?

Didn't use Ajinamoto as i heard this is Carcinogenic , also Spring Onion wasn't available in market. Apart from that also everything worked properly and dish was good . I used green Chilies sliced and it went well too. Thanks for the recipe guidance.
