Preparation -- 5 minutes

PEEL the ginger root, the most easy way to do this is using a spoon. Pressing your thumb onto the spoon while you grate the peel downwards. Finely GRATE the ginger root using a grater.

PEEL and finely chop the garlic clove and add it to the bowl along with the grated ginger. ADD 2 tablespoons sunflower oil, 2 tablespoons vinegar, 3 tablespoons tomato ketchup, 2 tablespoons soy sauce and 1 tablespoon light brown caster sugar to the bowl and COMBINE well with a fork.

ADD 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with a little bit of water in a small bowl and combine well. If you're using cornstarch directly to the sauce, you'll probably end up with lumps.
