Chinese stir fried vegetables, typically, chinese cuisine uses a lot of oil in its stir-fried preparations, which makes the food unhealthy. I’ve used less oil in this stir-fried preparation, which brings out the flavour of the vegetables with the chinese flavourings. A truly guilt-free one-dish meal that provides just 41 calories, it is also rich in proteins, vitamin c and fibre. I’ve tried to make some of the authentic chinese ingredients like chilli oil, chillies in vinegar and garlic water, at home itself, to give that authentic chinese feel to this preparation even while not sending you on a wild goose chase across town to obtain the ingredients. Relish it with a bowl of chinese style noodles.
