To finish off a sweet and sour dish you will need the following ingredients for 4 people:
This is best served with the chicken balls (see the separate recipe).
Here’s what you do:
Step 1 - Fry the onion, ginger, garlic and lemon in the oil on a moderate heat for 10-15 minutes until it is very dark brown and starting to caramalise (do not allow to burn).
Step 2 - Drain through a sieve into a saucepan and then wash through with 1/2 pint of boiling water and squash the ingredients to extract as much juice as you can.
Step 3 - Add the vinegar and pineapple juice (if using) and bring to a rolling boil.
Step 4 - Whisk in the tomato puree, then thicken with cornflour to make the sauce the consistency of custard.
Step 5 - Start adding the sugar gradually. Keep on tasting the sauce and add the sugar to taste.
