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.

Cabbage, baby corn and capsicum deep fried and then cooked with burnt garlic to give a great flavor. Goes well with chilli sauce or soya sauce.
