Never try this before, would it changes the taste a lot if I omitted the chillies? My little girls still can't eat too spicy food yet.

Beachlover, I didn't fry the meat. Actually you can do that but I don't want to used to much oil so I just stir fried it.

Pearly, this dish taste really good with rice :)

LCOM, actually you can just omit the chillies. I add some lots of it for extra kick as I am the queen of chillis :) I am queen of chillies as you can see from most of my dishes :) :)
