Stir fried vegetables

Posted 14Th. June 2009

Vegetables are a must in any Asian dishes. Cooking vegetables are very easy and do not require elaborate preparations and can be ready in minutes. Unlike western cooking, Vegetables are normally stir-fried and most of the nourishment are retain if done this way. Lettuce, cucumber, Pak Choy, cabbages all can be stir-fried.

Here I am showing how to cook Pak Choy, but you can use lettuce as an alternative if Pak Choy is not available.

1. 400 gms. Pak Choy (or lettuce)

2. 2 cloves of garlic - sliced thinly.

3. 1 tablespoon of soy-sauce.

4. 1 tablespoon of cooking oil.

Heat the oil in a pan or a wok. Put in sliced garlic pieces and do a quick fry for about 1 minute.
Put in your Pak Choy or lettuce in the pan and add in the soy-sauce. Stir-fry for another 2 minutes. If you prefer your vegetables more cooked, then do it for 3 minutes instead.

That's it, you're done!

The dish can be eaten stand-alone or served with plain white rice.

Special Fried Rice London Style.

Special Fried Rice - London style is very appetising and easy to cook. I normally cook this dish for my family in London and they have always enjoyed it. Why don't you try it yourself !

Special Fried Rice- London style.

This Special Fried Rice has always been the favourite with my kids. I made up this dish when I was living in London. In fact I have made up quite a number of recipes due to the fact that much of the ingredients needed for most Asian dishes were not readily available in England. If they were, I still need to go to London's Chinatown to get it. My Fried Spaghetti was also concocted while living there. (And beer brewing, wine making and ........)

1. Streaky bacon 4 pieces cut into 1 inch lengths.
2. 200 gms. fresh prawns - shelled.
3. 100 gms. breast of chicken - cut into small pieces.
4. 200 gms. mixed vegetables.
5. 2 eggs beaten well.
6. 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped.
7. Half teaspoon of fine table salt.
8. White ground pepper - added to taste (optional if you require non-spicy)
9. 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.
10.Cooked rice (cook half a kilo of long grain rice)

Heat up the cooking oil in a Wok and fry for 1 minute. Add in chicken, bacon, prawns and mixed vegetables. Stir fry for another 5 minutes.
Add in the rice and mix thoroughly in the Wok with the vegetables; keep stir fry for another 5 minutes.
Add in the beaten eggs and salt (and pepper) and sir fry all together for a further 10 minutes.
Ready to serve for 4 people.
Isn't it easy when you know how?
