Recipe Description:

The origins of this rightfully beloved pan-Asian recipe are unclear. At one end, it draws inspiration from the chilli-abundant, ginger-marinated Sichuan Chinese lazijii, literally ‘spicy chicken’. At the other extreme, it’s reminiscent of the milder, more umami-forward Japanese ebi chilli, a prawn-based fry with a similarly thick, lip-smacking sauce. We say ‘milder’— this delectably devilish fusion dish still packs a distinctive red chilli kick. We’ve paid tribute to both its mysterious cross-cultural origins and Western popularity by incorporating the vibrant accents of lime, water chestnut and mangetout.
