My husband really liked this recipe and wants it again, but trying it with other meat such as beef or mutton. I would like to make it with eggs.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
