1 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 cup soya sauce

For Spaghetti
1 cup spaghetti
2 tablespoon minced ginger

4. In another medium sized bowl, combine the chicken broth, water, sesame oil and black pepper powder with the sugar, vinegar and soya sauce.
5. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the cornflour with some of this mixture and slowly add to the bulk of the mixture, stirring well. Keep aside.
6. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok or large pan over high heat, add the chicken and stir fry for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.
7. Transfer the chicken along with juices to a warm plate.
8. Heat the remaining oil in the same wok or pan over high heat, add ginger, garlic, mushrooms, spring onions and stir fry for 30 seconds.
9. Add the sauce mixture and then the chicken. Simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, for about 2-3 minutes.
10. Add boiled noodles, salt if required and toss gently.
11. Serve immediately.
