  1. I have used regular peanut butter which already has some salt and sugar in it. If you are using peanut butter with no added sugar and salt, adjust the amount of soy sauce and sugar in the recipe.
  2. Use warm water in the sauce it will make the mixing process easy and you will get a smooth creamy sauce.
  3. If your peanut butter is old and dry, add around a teaspoon of sesame oil to the sauce.
  4. Instead of brown sugar, you can also add any other sweetener of your choice.
  5. More detailed notes are given in the post above. Please refer them to make this dish.
