Vegetables – Hongkong Style


Whenever I prepare Chinese Veg Fried Rice or Schezwan Rice, I like to prepare Cauliflower Manchurian as its side dish. I get time to fry the Cauliflower but not to make the gravy. I serve them dry. I wanted something easy and fast to prepare that goes well with Fried Rice. My search ended when I saw this recipe in Tarla Dalal’s Recipe. This is easy to prepare; yet tasty and different.



Ingredients:

Mixed Vegetables 1 cup (Baby Corn, Carrots, Beans, Cauliflower)
Capsicum ¼ cup
Soya Sauce 1 tbsp
Chilli Sauce 1 tbsp
Vinegar 1 tsp
Corn Flour 1 tbsp
Finely chopped Ginger and Garlic 1 tsp each
Dried Red Chillies 2
Pepper ½ tsp or to taste
Spring Onions Few
Salt
Oil


Preparation:

Chop Vegetables and Capsicum into medium pieces. Chop Spring Onions into fine pieces.

Method:

Cook Vegetables for one whistle in a Pressure Cooker.

Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Spring Onions, chopped Ginger and Garlic. Saute till they turn slightly brown.

Add Capsicum and fry for a while. Now add the cooked Vegetables, all the Sauces & Vinegar, Pepper and Salt. Mix well.

Mix Cornflour in ½ cup of Water and stir well. Add this mixture to the gravy and stir well. Cook till done.

Serves: 2
Serve with Chinese Fried Rice or Schezwan Fried Rice.

Notes: I have used light Soya Sauce. Use thick one to get good color.

Oh, loved the dish...actually this is a fusion dish... an Indo-Chinese one. In Hong Kong (where I live), they eat this in a more bland way. This sounds really healthy and yummy in itself, would love to give this a try...

That sounds really fresh, healthy, and delicious!

Laxmi said...

Thanks all for your lovely comments.
@Uma, though Lemon can be substituted instead of Vinegar in many recipes, I dont think the same will work out here. Chilli Sauce, Soy Sauce and Vinegar are mostly used in every chinese cuisine.. May be you can try avoiding vinegar.
