A simple dish, I've had many times, but never knew exactly how to prepare. Just a few months ago I saw in an issue of China Today a recipe that reminded me of it. And after trying it out, it is almost as the dish I have had so often. The only difference between the Jiangsi ji as I remembered it and the recipe below is that they seem to have omitted the red chili. But you can put that in if you like.
