Mixed veggie stir-fry


This is a very simple home-cooked stir-fry dish which I'm sure most of you will know how to prepare.  I fried the cauliflower and red capsicum to just three quarters cooked as I prefer them to be crunchy ..... pairs well with a bowl of hot white rice.





Ingredients
  • 100 gm prawns
  • 2 pieces fish cake, sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, cut into wedges
  • 100 gm  cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 4 pips garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1 tsp cornflour + 2  Tbsp water for thickening
  • Salt and some light soya sauce to taste
Seasoning for prawns
  • 1 tsp each :  salt, sugar
  • A dash of pepper
Preparation
  1. Marinate the prawns with the above seasoning.  Set aside.
  2. Pan-fry the sliced fish cake for a while till slightly brown, push aside.
  3. Add in more oil and saute the chopped garlic till fragrant.
  4. Toss in the cauliflower, stir-fry for a while followed by the capsicum.
  5. Add in the seasoned prawns, sprinkle some water if necessary.
  6. Test for taste and add in the cornflour thickening.  Turn off heat.
  7. Stir in the wine, dish out onto serving plate.
  8. Serve hot with rice.

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
