Vegetable Sir-fry is an interesting way to add vegetables to your diet. I have used french beans, carrots, zucchini, red, green and yellow bell peppers to make the stir-fry. You can add veggies of your own choice to make this dish. Vegetables like broccoli, baby corn, sweet corn can be added. You can even add mushrooms and sprouts. Here, vegetables are moderately cooked so as to retain the flavour, colour, crunch and texture of the veggies. Vegetable Stir-fry makes a good accompaniment with hakka noodles or you can just pair it with a soup of your choice. Soup and Vegetable Stir-fry is a healthy and light dinner option.
