    Pinaygourmet #345142's Note:

    This is a delicious Singapore classic usually served with chewy crusty french bread or steaming hot white rice. My aunt learned how to make this from a friend who was the head chef of a five star hotel at home. My aunt usually adds a couple spoonfuls of toasted ground peanuts on the final toss in the wok. Reduce the amount of chillies according to your preference.
