    Assalamu Alakium shana,
    I wish to try this recipe InshaAllah. Advice me what can be the substitute of ” oyster sauce”. Thank you ,hugs.

    • Oh wonderful Nilu… vegetarian oyster sauce is also available .. i guess you could just add a little extra light soy sauce to taste and use cornflour to thicken.. although flavor of oyster sauce is unique. Make sure you use a soy sauce that tastes good to you.. i like a brand called tiger brand.. also please make sure to read the intro page for tips to get the ‘ wok lei’ flavor
