  1. Mix the sesame paste with 3 tablespoons of cold stock
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, apart from the sugar and combine well
  3. Stir in sugar to taste


If you cannot get sesame paste or tahini then substitute smooth peanut butter, or just try it for a change.

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.
