Excellent sauce for stir frying

December 26, 2023

I have used the sauce for a mixed stir fry and it was delicious. I used the stir fry as a side dish for tandoori chicken kebabs. For the first time I used an Indian and a Asian recipe and I liked it. I didn’t use rice but made nan bread and raita for the dinner, sounds strange but I loved it. I think Marion you have inspired me in changing, mixing and twisting when comes to cooking, thanks.
