I love stir-frys! They are so easy to make and truly yummy! Stir-fry’s in my kitchen are usually a medley of mixed veggies tossed in various spices and sauces. It hardly takes time to gather the ingredients and once that is ready to go, everythingis tossed together on high heat. Its a very versatile dish where you can add any flavours that you love, making it as sweet, sour or spicy as you like. And for those of you who know me, I love mine SPICY!!
I make my stir-frys on a whim with whatever is available in my fridge. There is no particular recipe I follow and no two stir-frys of mine ever taste the same. I was just cleaning out the fridge today and decided to use the little scraps of left-over veggies to wok up a medley of flavours!
Chicken and Bean Stir-Fry
1 chicken breast chopped into tiny bite-size pieces
2 cups green beans (I love having the frozen ones in my freezer all the time)
2 stalks of green onion sliced into 1-inch pieces
3-4 stalks of celery chopped in bite-size pieces
1 cup sliced red pepper
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 cube chicken buillion
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
salt, to taste
2 tbsp cooking oil
Heat oil in a wok and add chicken pieces. Stir-fry till chicken is cooked through and add chili powder, curry powder, buillion cube and black pepper. Stir-fry for a minute and add celery and beans.
Cook for a minute or two and add red pepper and green onion. Add soya sauce and salt and stir- fry for a few minute till all the flavours blend together.
Serve over warm rice and enjoy!
