  5. Dassana, your recipes are all excellent. I use a lot of them especially when we have guests visiting. I have 1 question for this recipe – what is the difference between the regular ordinary soya sauce we find in the market and the naturally fermented soya sauce? When I go to buy Soya sauce should I specifically ask for naturally fermented soy sauce? Thanks a lot!

    • monica naturally fermented soya sauce is more healthier as the regular ordinary soya sauce has a lot of mixing just check the label back. hope this help’s you 🙂
