These are great. I added 8 Tblspns water chestnuts chopped and 2 Tblspsn fresh coriander instead of the bamboo shoots and 2 Tblspn chau hsing wine and they were great. Many thanks for a quick lunch suggestion. Served with dark soy sauce with 1 fresh chopped chilli - yummy and no double dipping here! This is an excellent, entertaining program.
