  • 1 clove garlic (you can add as much as you want)
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp fried chicken breading mix (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp iodized fine salt
  • 2 Tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 3 Tbsp vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 pinch ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup water
