I haven’t decided if I’m a lazy person yet. I do know however that I am a big fan of 10 minute meals. This is just one of those amazingly quick and scrumptious dishes and a perfect veggie fix.
I believe everyone has their favourite stir fry, and that has to do with your favourite sauce. Some prefer hoisin, some oyster sauce, some teriyaki. I love a good stir fry with chilli garlic – it just has the right amount of zing. Perfect with the leftover bowl of rice or noodles, or just by itself.
You will need:
- Snow peas: 150 gms.
- French beans: 150 gms.
- Mushrooms: 150 gms.
- Garlic paste: 1 tablespoon
- Chilli oil: 2 tablespoons
- Dried whole red chili: 2-3
- Roasted sesame seeds: ½ teaspoon (optional)
- Salt: to taste
Halve the mushrooms, and cut the french beans to 3 inch long pieces.
In a wok, on medium heat, add one tablespoon of chilli oil, garlic paste and dried whole red chillis and cook for a minute.
Add the snow peas (whole), beans, mushrooms and salt and stir fry for 5-7 minutes (I cook for lesser time since I prefer my vegetables crunchy. Cook for 12-15 minutes if you prefer them softer).
Remove from heat, drizzle the other tablespoon of chilli oil and sesame seeds (if using) and serve.
