    I love this recipe and make it frequently. I use chicken drumsticks and when they have become tender enough, I remove the chicken from the bone, and return it to the sauce. I don't fry it first, I just fry up the onion, garlic, chilli, ginger, then add the flour and cook it to get rid of the raw taste, add the liquid ingredients and give it a stir and then add the drumsticks. I often make this the day before I need it. It freezes really well and is my favourite dish to just pull from the freezer and serve with rice. I also dry-fry some sesame seeds and scatter those and the finely sliced green onions over the dish to serve. Looooove it!
