Any benefits?

This recipe contains all the greats needed to get you through confinement (Sesame oil, ginger, black or white pepper ).
Ginger is excellent for warming the body and expelling wind (both important things to achieve during Chinese confinement).
It is a nutritious and delicious course.
This recipe is super easy to make. I would recommend making a bowl / jar of pre-grated ginger so you can whip this up in less than 10 minutes.

Any precautions?

This is a heaty dish and not recommended for people who can't too heaty foods or are currently overheated.
