- Black Pomfret (marinated with salt), finely chopped Onions, finely chopped Tomatoes (without skin), Spring-Onions, Ginger and Chillis.
To peel the Tomatoes skin, simply slightly score across the base of the tomato in a cross fashion. Put it in boiling water for a few seconds. Run it in cold water. The skin will peel right off.
- Salt, Sugar, a dash of Sesame oil, Oyster sauce and Shaoxing wine. A little Cornstarch mixture as thickening agent. Maybe a touch of the bottled ketchup for taste and color. All to taste. ** Note : Just dash of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice (no rocket scientific measurement here). Always taste your Seasoning !!!
