Recipe Notes

Substitute Products:

Chicken stock 

If you prefer you can use 1/2 TBS Thermomix vegetable stock with 220gm water instead of commercial liquid chicken stock.

Peanut Oil

Any mild flavoured oil can be substituted for peanut oil without any change in flavour. Vegetable oil would be a good alternative.
