I wonder if baypuppy's sauce was spicier than the recipe intends, because the spice ingredients listed raise a question for me:

Is the Tablespoon of garlic and ginger supposed to be the dry, ground spice....or freshly grated/minced?

Obviously, if it calls for a Tablespoon of fresh, then the ground spice would be a lesser amount than listed....I'd mostly love to know because A) I really want to make this, and I have fresh garlic and ginger to use, and B) I'm not too experienced with cooking Indian food, and I want to make absolutely sure I do it right and get the flavor that is intended for this recipe.

Also, can I substitute something else for the corn flour, like soy or rice flour?

I really can't wait to make sounds great!
