    About this recipe: This recipe was given to me a few years ago by a Burmese friend. I like it so much that I make it almost every week. The dish is rich and spicy and also has a sweet and sour taste.

    • 1 tablespoon chopped root ginger
    • 3 red chillies, chopped
    • 2 stalks lemon grass, sliced
