Don't you love it when you go to make a dinner and you're missing a vital ingredient?
Some of my most memorable meals come from me making do after finding my pantry lacking in necessary items.
Hence, instead of making a honey-soy sauce for my stir fry last night, I ended up making some kind of chilli Thai concoction... and it was glorious.
1/2 cup Ketjap Manis (sweet soy sauce)
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon cornflour mixed with 1 teaspoon water
1 chilli, finely sliced
juice of one lime
handful coriander, chopped
Mix all in a bowl.
Easy peasy! You can add garlic, but I stir fried my vegetables in it and that was enough... in fact, I recommend that, it adds such a depth of flavour to the veggies. Delicious :)
