KhwanJai’s Top Tips:
Check out Ginger in our wiki before you buy, this recipe is best with young ginger if you can get it; if not use a little less

If you want a spicier version check out our other Chicken Ginger Video for a how to (opens new window)

When adding the garlic at the start, it should only 5 – 10 seconds to start turning golden brown if it takes longer yer fat aint hot enough, it’s not a problem, just wait until it starts changing colour and by then it’s hot enough

Print off the recipe! It helps to have it at hand when watching to make any notes you see fit, Khwanjai still does this every time she tries something for the first time

Note: I say in the video “add 1 table spoon of sugar, my mistake, the recipe is correct “1 tea spoon” of sugar
