Fresh tomato 1 (cut into cubes)
Cucumber 1 (cut into cubes)

Young ginger 3 slices
Garlic 2 (chopped)

Tomato ketchup 4tbsp
Chili sauce 1tbsp
Sour plum sauce 1tbsp
Sugar 1tsp or to taste
Salt ½ tsp or to taste

1. Marinate chicken meat with-light soy sauce, pepper, salt, sesame oil, tapioca flour, little water (to moist the chicken) and egg for 1 hour.
2. Coat with rice flour, and fry in hot oil till golden brown, set aside.
3. Heat oil in a wok, stir fry ginger slices and garlic, add some water.
