A vegetable preparation from the Chinese repertoire, Saiwoo Vegetables is a semi-dry, sweet and spicy way of cooking assorted veggies like carrot, baby corn and capsicum. The crisp, deep-fried vegetables are cooked with typical Oriental ingredients like chillies, ginger, garlic and spring onions, but what makes this recipe unique is the addition of a flavourful honey sauce, prepared with honey, soy sauce and a blend of flavours. This sweet and spicy sauce leaves its indelible mark on your palate, making it yearn for more.
