  1. One of the best ,Chinese dishes.
    Vibrant,juicy recipe with nice chilly flavour.I served it with rice noddles tossed lightly with spring onions and sesame seeds.It was better than a Chinese takeaway itself.

    1. Glad you all loved this dish. Do not forget the fish oil as it alone gives the Chinese taste. Try prawns using the same recipe. Thank you again.
