“Just a little something I found in a magazine. I am yet to try this. The recipe calls for flavor enhancer sauce. I haven't looked yet, but I am assuming you can find this in an International foods store. 4th March, 2008: The flavor enhancer sauce might be Maggi seasoning (Thank you Happy Hippie C#122878 for the tip).”
