Tips & Suggestions

1 If you can't find pomegranate molasses locally, you can order pomegranate molasses syrup online from

2 You can find House of Tsang Stir-Fry Oil in most supermarkets in the International/Asian food section. If you can't find that brand, use another garlic infused, high-heat oil.
