Everything about this Chinese dish is very special. First of all, let’s have a look at the veggies. They are crisp-fried in a batter that is perked up with dashing ingredients like ginger-garlic paste and lemon juice.
The next twist in the Crispy Fried Vegetables with Burnt Garlic, is of course, the burnt garlic. It is amazing how sautéing the garlic a little more than usual transforms it from a mere addition to the dish to a key characteristic of it.
Tossing the two together with soya sauce and spring onions gives rise to a really tongue-tickling delicacy that has an overwhelming flavour and aroma.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai, dip each vegetable into the batter and deep-fry in hot oil, a few at a time on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Drain on an absorbent paper. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the garlic and sauté on a high flame for 1 minute.
- Add the spring onions, soya sauce and salt and sauté on a high flame for 1 minute.
- Add the crispy fried vegetables, toss gently and cook on a high flame for 1 minute, while tossing occasionally.
- Garnish with spring onion greens and serve immediately with schezuan sauce.
