Fried rice served,is never complete without a
sweet’n’sour dish !
Today it’s a baby corn, pineapple dish . I always
love the sweet and sour with pineapple ,if not
with orange juice ! I do not use soy sauce or aji-
no -moto in any recipe ,instead add fish sauce
or oyster sauce in minute quantities.
If you love soya sauce,then I have given the
option for it in my recipe .
The baby corn is first dipped in batter ,fried,
and added to the prepared hot sauce .
