Ingredients

  • oil
  • root ginger 1cm piece, shredded

  • sesame seeds 50g
  • golden caster sugar 1 tbsp
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed
  • soy sauce 3 tbsp
  • sesame oil

Method

  • Step 1

    For the sauce, toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying-pan until they colour and smell fragrant. Crush to a paste with the sugar, garlic and soy sauce in a pestle and mortar or spice grinder. Add enough sesame oil to make a pourable sauce.

  • Step 2

    Heat a little oil in a wok and fry the ginger and garlic, add the pak choi and stir-fry quickly until the stems are just tender. Tip onto a plate and drizzle with the sauce.
