  1. Heat the oil in a pan and add the ginger and spring onions
  2. Fry for about 10 to 15 minutes until the spring onions turn golden
  3. Keep the heat on the low side to ensure you don't burn the ingredients as this may bring out unpleasant flavours.

  5. Store in sealed jars in the fridge

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.
