Expert Tips

For 9 grams of fat and 250 calories per serving, decrease the oil to 1 tablespoon and use a nonstick wok or skillet.

Using minced or ground gingerroot from the jar makes for one less ingredient to chop. Look for it in the produce section of your grocery store.

Wear rubber gloves when working with chilies to prevent the burning oils from irritating your skin or eyes. If you prefer a milder taste, cut the chili in half and remove the membranes and seeds before slicing.
