Chef s Tip

This recipe can also be made with cooked spaghetti to transform this dish into ‘kee mao’ recipe.It that case it will also accommodate very well with seafood.

You can make this recipe vegan by substituting the meat with diced mushrooms or diced deep frying tofu, use VG oyster sauce and light soya sauce instead of fish sauce.
