Appears as a tasty vegetable dish but some people may not like it due to the high dose of chillies until unless the chillies are bigger ones which are generally less hotter.

In that case, I will suggest using tomato sauce or ginger garlic sauce in place of chillies to adjust the hotness so the taste will also be preserved and chillies can be avoided.
