- Chicken can be used instead of pork, in this recipe.
- I used a small serrano pepper in place of hot red chilli.
- Distilled vinegar was used as the white vinegar.
- It is a good accompaniment to Noodles with Peanut sauce which I will share with you once I try it out!
Try this out friends, you wont be disappointed.
