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.

  • 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.

Puff Pastry Nian Gao ~ 酥皮年糕

Each Chinese New Year, I would get a Nian Gao, sticky rice cake as an offering for prayers as Nian Gao is a homonym for  'higher year',  which symbolises increasing prosperity and higher achievement for the coming year.  Therefore it is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during this period.  Instead of frying the Nian Gao with batter like what I did 'here', this time I chose to just wrap it up with a piece of puff pastry and dump it into the oven, and the ultimate result,  yummy gluey Nian Gao with crispy pastry!
