Estimate or approximation
In Chinese cooking there are alot of estimation.
Chinese chef used a ladle to scoop salt, oil, soy sauce and
other added ingredients during cooking. This method speed up
their cooking time.
Through experience you will get the right amount.
Here is a trick, just add less and teste until
you get it right. Once you know the amount you will always remember.
A pinch of salt or salt to taste means add salt gradually or
bit-by-bit until the saltiness just right for you.
A dash of pepper mean a shake or two from the
dispenser. If you like more add more.
Enough oil for deep fried mean look at the food
to be fried, than pour enough oil in wok and estimate it will
cover the food for deep frying.
Too sour, add some sugar to lower the sourness of the food.
