Stir-fries are filling and wholesome one-pan dishes that can easily replace calorie-packed meals! They are usually made by tossing, cooking or sautéing chopped vegetables, fruits, sprouts, paneer etc. in a wok or pan, with very little oil on a high heat for a very short time. Stir-frying is essentially a cooking technique, and contrary to the misconception that stir-fries are synonymous with Thai or Chinese cooking, the cooking technique can be applied even to our own subzis, making them healthier and more interesting in taste.
Stir-fries score high on the health factor. Since they are cooked fast and with very little oil, there is minimal vitamin loss. The nutrients and flavours of the ingredients are retained just as the colour and texture are preserved. For those of you in search of such healthy alternatives, stir-frying is the best option.
What are you waiting for? Step into the kitchen and toss in and stir up a delightful fare, in a jiffy, for your family right now!
