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.

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
