Sweet & Sour Sauce
1 onion (finely chopped)
2/3 cloves garlic (very finely chopped)

3 teaspoons soy sauce
3 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon mustard (I like to use French)
11/2 tablespoons corn flour

Saute onions in oil in a small pan, when they start to soften add the garlic, ginger and chilies.
After a few minutes add the sugar and the vinegar.

Add the corn flour and mix it through the mix before pouring on the water. Also add pineapple if desired.
