Cut the carrot, onion and tofu into 1cm dice. Boil the water in a pan and add the shredded chicken, carrots and onions. Add the salt and sake and boil on high heat for 5 minutes.
2
Add the tofu, soy sauce, stock granules and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes.
3
Add the frozen prawns and green peas and cook for a further 2 minutes then turn the heat off. Add the potato starch in water a bit at a time and stir to thicken. Pour in the beaten egg slowly, but don't stir.

You can add green beans, mushrooms or your favourite vegetables but always add the vinegar right at the end to retain its sourness. The heat is from the pepper, not chilli, so adjust the vinegar and pepper to your taste.
