At any rate, that's a whole lot of oregano.
i asked again to the creator of that dish and it is exactely that amount,
yes the result is quite an intense taste, but all togheter it is not pungent at all,
of course depends very much on the individual preferences.
The dishes of the Buddhahill cooking book are all re-invented,
all the indian, chinese, italian dishes are created anew,
so if it is the first time that you hear about oregano in a chinese dish,
and if you are interested and curious to try it yoou can experiment cooking that and share the result ok?
