water or more sugar if its too salty, simmer it for another 5 minutes.
(h) Serve it with steam rice, the pickled cucumber, pour over the sauce onto the rice.

Yeepeee dinner is served!
I am glad that my hubby love this, thanks for mummy recipe and I love this very much!
Try to make it at home, split it into few containers for few meals, well if you are lazy to cook haha
You can store the extra sauce in a container and make a bento for tomorrow lunch or late morning breakfast :))))

I personally like the dark soy eggs, so if you like the egg, put in few more eggs to be cooked in the sauce, you can keep the extra one in the fridge for later use :)
It is a simple and delicious meal, try it and let me know!
