Expert Tips

You can prepare fried rice with scrambled eggs without veggies or meat and serve as a side.

Chinese food is one of my favorites because of it's rich in colors and delicious flavors. Of course you can prepare it at home, but there are a few things you should keep in mind to make the process a little easier. To make sure your Chinese dishes come out delicious, it is very important that you carefully read the instructions and have all your ingredients at hand. The sauces are basic and we should rely on them to give our food flavor. Once you start cooking, everything gets done very quickly which is why organization is key. I invite you to surprise your family with this delicious Chinese dish. Serve with white rice and maybe even tapioca with mango for dessert!

You can use shrimp or fish in the place of chicken.

Try searching for tamarind in ethnic grocery stored.
