    Do I need to use rice in this recipe? Is there an alternative ingredient as I am a Muslim.

      Hi Sharina,

      You can substitute rice wine with apple juice, white grape juice or even lemon juice. The acid in the juice acts as a tenderiser in stir-fry marinades. However, the flavour will be slightly differ from the original.

      Hope this helps.
