At one time, I used powdered ginger, which I haven't had in my house for years. I prefer
to grate my ginger, which you can find in most supermarkets. Store it in the freezer for two
reasons: it lasts longer and it's easier to grate. This stir-fry can be made in minutes,
provided you have the ingredients. If not, feel free to improvise. You can use bamboo
shoots, carrots, green pepper or even a few jalapeno peppers. You may not want to try
habanero peppers unless you have no taste buds left and have plenty of friends.
