As a total novice to the dark art I ventured in with trepidation. This was the first recipe I chose from this site and I found it easy to do and VERY tasty. Highly recommended, and if you’re a single guy looking to impress in the kitchen make this once for yourself to get the hang of it, then again for your date; she’ll be impressed.

Delicious! I added some chopped shitake mushrooms and a chilli pepper. I used a mixture of olive and sesame oils for frying. A very colourful attractive dish

This was yummy, I tried it with some cherry tomatoes and added 3 tsp of thai red curry paste, 1tsp crushed ginger and dried chilli flakes. Worked really well. The kitchen still smells of it and it's making me hungry!!
