This looks like an excellent recipe and I am going to make it soon. I had to look up Ajinomoto and found it to be MSG which I no longer eat. I am hoping that it doesn't make any difference in the final recipe.

Very good.....but please try by adding a few diced capsicum and 1 tsf of vinegar just before finishing. These give a different dimension to this dish
