  • Mushroom - If you don't have dry shitake mushroom you can use button or closed-up mushroom of your choice.
  • Vegetable - You don't need to use exact same ingredients, feel free to swap with your favourite stir fry vegetables. 
  • Chilli oil - You can use Lao Gan Ma Chilli oil, Lee Kum Kee chilli oil, or any of your favourite Chinese chilli oil. If you want to use a homemade one check out my  Chilli Garlic and Sichuan Chilli Oil recipe. 
  • Vegetarian option - Use vegetarian stir fry sauce or mushroom stir fry sauce instead of oyster sauce. You can find it in Lee Kum Kee brand.
