Simple yet tasty dish. Take my words , you will never regret trying this out. It will definitely makes you remember it ..... Thanx mummy for giving me this precious long lost recipe.
Tips : Adjust the rock sugar according to your own preference . Some like it salty sweet , some don't . So be smart to adjust to your own liking. I bought the rock sugar which has been cut to small pieces . I like it salty sweet so I will normally use 2 pcs of the ready cut small pieces of rock sugar. Adjust the amount of soya sauce to your own taste. Happy cooking ... ;)
