Di San Xian
This is a common Chinese meal. Di San Xian means “three things of the earth” meaning potatoes, eggplant and peppers. This is a very tasty meal. The sweetness of the tamarin is important to the dish. If you don’t have a sweet soy sauce, I would add a splash of maple syrup or brown sugar.
