    1. Cut the thighs into bite sized pieces, not too small. In a bowl combine them with the egg yolk, 1 tablespoon soy and 1 clove garlic. Set aside.
    2. Sift the flour, cornflour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the water, eggs, 2 teaspoons oil and sesame seeds and mix well.
    3. Make the sauce: heat the 1 tablespoon oil and add garlic and ginger. Cook briefly then add stock, sugar, soy and pepper. Simmer 5 minutes.
    4. Heat up 4 cups of vegetable oil in a saucepan. Coat the chicken pieces with the batter then deep fry in batches until golden brown.
    5. In a frypan, combine the chicken and garlic sauce and heat through. Serve garnished with spring onions.
