This is sure to satisfy all your cravings for Chinese food, it's a great recipe. Be brave with the ginger, it mellows out as it cooks and is helped along by the sweetness of the dish. The cashew nuts are optional but I am yet to make it without them as I love their crunchy texture and creamy taste. Be sure to serve it with plenty of white fluffy rice. Quicker than waiting for takeout. UPDATE - I HAVE DECREASED THE AMOUNT OF WATER USED IN THE SAUCE FROM 1/2PT TO 1/4 PINT BUT I FIND IT DOES TEND TO GET A BIT TOO THICK AND NEEDS A DROP OR 2 MORE. USE YOUR SENSES, IF YOU THINK IT NEEDS IT THEN ADD IT! ADDING FROZEN VEGGIES WILL WATER THE SAUCE DOWN CONSIDERABLY. THIS PARTICULAR RECIPE DOES NOT ADHERE MUCH TO TWEAKING AND I SUGGEST YOU TRY IT AS STATED BELOW FIRST. THANK YOU
