Stir Fried Vegetables

My apologies for not having replied to your comments (to those of you who dropped in comments) and for not being in touch with anyone.

Yes. I have been disappearing for quite a while :D. Tight schedule at work. My inlaws were here until last month. Couple of months back, I went out with them and accidentally dropped my bag which had Camera and Handycam (both without cover) in it. Both stopped working. I got it working only couple of days back. Which is one of the reason that kept me away from posting recipes.
Though I got lot of recipes from my mother-in-law, I never had a chance to post any of them. Those are Andhra special. I will try to post one by one... By the way this recipe is not hers :)

I managed to find some time today to post my favourite and a quick recipe.
Stir Fried Vegetables - one of the easiest , less time consuming but a very healthy dish. Picking the right vegetables add to the taste. It hardly takes 10 mins (definitely not more than that including cutting vegetables) and it tastes good.

Broccoli - 1/2 flower
Carrot - 3
Baby button Mushroom - 150 gms
Courgette (Zucchini) - 1 medium size.
Baby corn - 150 gms

Corn flour - 2 Tsps
Vegetable Stock - 1 Cube (I used Knorr)
Vinegar - 1 Tsp
Soy Sauce - 1 Tsp
Red Chilli Sauce - 1 Tsp
Olive oil - 2 Tsps

  1. Cut all the vegetables into medium sized pieces (as shown above)
  2. Mix corn flour in 1/4 cup of water.
  3. Mix vegetable stock to corn flour paste. Ensure that no lumps are formed.
  4. Add vinegar, soy sauce and 1 tsp of olive oil (you could use any other oil as an alternate). Mix well and keep it aside.
  5. Heat 1 tsp of olive oil (or any other oil) in a pan.
  6. Add the cut vegetables. Fry for 2 mins.
  7. Add 1/4 cup of water and keep it covered for 1 min.
  8. Remove the lid and add the paste prepared in step 4.
  9. Add red chilli paste , fry for 20 seconds and remove from stove.
  10. This goes well with rice and Chapati. Cook rice with little salt.


You could also add Water chestnut and bamboo shoots which will give a complete Chinese touch. Adjust quantity of vegetables and water according to your taste.
