I made this for a client yesterday and it was fantastic. I added a drizzle of sesame oil to the cooking oil, and used Sake instead of the white wine. The spicy taste comes from not only the chili but also from the garlic and ginger. This is very "moor-ish". I will make this again soon, so that I can have it rather than have to give it away to a client!
