This is the best sweet & sour I've ever had, better than any I've ever had from a restaurant or takeaway.


4 out of 5 stars

Delicious and easy to do, but definitely only feeds 4 people. I would add extra courgette next time or other veg.


4 out of 5 stars

This was really easy to make. It was a little sweet for my liking, but I will certainly make it again with slightly less sugar and more veg.


5 out of 5 stars

Really tasty and so easy to do. I have it on a bed of white cabbage Yum!
