Golden fried crisp vegetables tossed with burnt garlic and spring onion is one of my favourite starters. These fried vegetables are best eaten immediately after they are cooked. Serve them with green onion and ginger dip and schezuan sauce.

Crispy fried vegetables.. wow.. this is my favourite as a starter.. the ginger garlic flavour in the batter gives a great taste to the veggies.. and the soya sauce added to the veggies.. gives a nice flavouring..

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.
