  2. As soon as you add the snow peas, season with salt and pepper and turn off heat. Don’t over cook the snow peas. It is good crisp.
  3. Fry the potatoes, carrots, green and red pepper so it doesn’t get mushy or soggy. It stays crisp when fried instead of simmering in the sauce.
  4. You can use quail eggs in a can if fresh quail eggs are not available in your area.
