  • Sprinkle in the Ginger & Curry Powder then, after a minute or so, add the Honey, Ketchup, Miso Paste and Soy Sauce.
  • Allow the mixture to begin to simmer into a paste then add the Stock Cube and Boiling Water.

Chef Tip:

  • You can substitute the flavour of the stock cube to suit your dish, try a Katsu Fish Finger Sandwich if you’re feeling especially dirty…
