This recipe uses about half a knob of fresh ginger, about half an inch long by one inch wide ISH. If you like it hot add more ginger, if you prefer a more subtle ginger flavour add less.
Do NOT use the ginger you get in a jar, they are often made with vinegar or similar. This can be OK for savoury dishes but will taste awful in these.
