Veggies in Hot Garlic Sauce

As I said many times on this space, I’m a big-time Garlic lover… And yes, friends specifically have to tell me to use less garlic if they don’t prefer much :P There are a few things without which I can’t survive longer and one of them is definitely ‘Garlic Bulbs’ :P I get them in a bunch… I love it in every possible form i.e. chopped, sauteed, minced, grated, pickled :D How can I miss posting my favorite sauce preparation using it…
No doubt, I love Indo-Chinese food… But all what I usually make is Dry Manchurian, Fried Rice or Hakka Noodles! Last time, when I planned Mock Orange Chicken, I thought of making something else to go with it :) And here I’m with this gravy preparation that worked perfect way with my bowl of fried rice.

STEPS TO FOLLOW:

  1. Wash, peel and deep-fry potato until golden brown. Parboil green beans (cut into 2-3) and carrot cubes in salted water. Cut button mushrooms into halves.
  2. Heat oil in a wok and add garlic, ginger, red chilly paste, spring onion whites and brown onions into it.
  3. Saute on high heat for a min and add mushrooms, soy sauce and red chilly sauce in it. Toss it quickly.
  4. Add vegetable stock, lemon juice and seasonings to it. Once it comes to boil, add processed veggies along with cornstarch slurry (with 2 tbsp water).
  5. Mix everything quickly on high heat and let it get cooked for a few mins or until sauce starts thickening.
  6. Garnish with spring onion greens and serve hot with fried rice!

SJ’s NOTE:

  • You can use seasonal vegetables of your choice!
  • If sesame oil is not available, you can use regular one too. I like cooking it in olive oil as well.
  • Adding moong bean sprouts will work great as well :)
