Vegetable Stir Fry

Recommended Posts


Now it is time for my local version for vegetable stir fry. There is a little influence from Chinese food here but everything in it is halal ;) It is so healthy because contains of many vegetables and there are some proteins from other ingredient like shrimp. It can be an appetizer or main course, up to you. Here is the recipe:



Vegetable Stir Fry

Add the shrimp, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, and green onion. Pour in the water, cover, and cook until the shrimp is no longer translucent in the center and the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Dissolve the cornstarch into the fish sauce in a small bowl. Stir into the cap cai along with the oyster sauce, sugar, and pepper; stir until thickened. Season with salt before serving.
