Finishing the Surinamese bami – 10 minutes

Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet and sauté the shallot and garlic for a few minutes. Stir in caster sugar along with soy sauce and ketjap. Add the cooked spaghetti and stir it well.

Put a lid on and let it cook for a few minutes, this way the spaghetti will absorb the sauce. Stir in the finely chopped celery, put the lid on again and serve after another few minutes. Enjoy your meal!
