Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Brown rice. TIPS: Lemongrass paste is sold in tubes in the fresh produce section of most supermarkets. If unavailable use fresh lemongrass (finely chopped and ground to a paste in a mortar and pestle). Add it: 2 tsp chilli paste in Step 1. Swap it: Kecap manis for oyster sauce.
