  • 85g light brown soft sugar
  • 70ml light soy sauce
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 4cm piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced (optional)


  1. Pour 350ml water into a small saucepan with the sugar, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Slowly bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Cook for 5 mins more or until glossy and slightly thickened. Combine the cornflour with 1 tbsp water and quickly whisk through the sauce. If it’s still too thick, add a splash more water. Pour into a clean jar and leave to cool at room temperature.

  2. Once cooled, will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spring onions just before serving, if you like.
