This is also one of the components in A's bento boxes I mentioned in my last post. A popular everyday dish that is of Chinese origin - a fact that was confirmed by Hiro who also shown us her way of making this dish that is known as Hiro's fried chicken by both A and her sister.
Making someone's favourite childhood dish can be a tricky business but thankfully I did get the thumbs up by the fussy taster.
I think I have been bitten by the Japanese bug after the lovely lunch we had and a trip to Daiso (where mainly not very useful cute Japanese things are sold) so there will be more Japanese dishes in the coming days. However I will fit in a Malaysian Monday post next week, remember the roundup won't happen for another week so I hope I will receive a few entries till then.
