Recipe Notes

  • Hoisin Sauce is Optional, one can use sesame oil instead also (have used neither of them, traditionally it is used).
  • One can use their choice of vegetables like bell pepper, mushroom and also can add spring onions (white and the green portion can both be used).
  • Have used normal salt, instead one can use ajinomto (Chinese salt) (Note: please be advised not suitable for kids and pregnant women, please use it with discretion).
