Stir frying is a very popular method of cooking food that originated in China. It is a nutritious and convenient way of cooking as it makes use of minimal oil. The short cooking time makes the vegetables more succulent and preserves their texture and natural flavours while preventing the loss of water soluble vitamins like B and C. I've used baby corn in the dish, as this versatile vegetable is extremely low in carbohydrates. Instead of the baby corn, you can even use mushrooms or low fat paneer.
