Marinate the chicken in all marination ingredients for about an hour.
Heat oil in a wok / kadhai and deep fry the chicken cubes a little at a time.
Leave to drain.
Dice the spring onion bulbs, and chop the tender part of the greens.
Remove excess oil from the wok and slightly fry the diced onion first and then the capsicum on high heat.
When just seared, remove and keep aside.
In the wok, heat a little more oil and put in the slit green chillies and finely chopped garlic.
Add the soya sauce, tomato sauce and chilli sauce with the vinegar and a little water and bring to a simmering.
Add in the chicken pieces and coat well with the sauce.
When the chicken is coated, add the seared onion, capsicum and spring onion greens.
Add more water if required, and thicken with the cornflour paste.
