    Crushed red chilly flakes – 1/4 tsp

4. Onion – 1/4 cup, cubed

6. Soy sauce – 1 tbsp

   Chilly sauce – 3/4 – 1 tsp

   Corn starch – 1/2 tsp

   Sugar – 1/4 tsp

   Oil – 1/2 tsp

In a small bowl, combine all  ingredients for the sauce.


Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan at medium heat. Add minced garlic and crushed chilly flakes. Saute for 30 seconds and then add all the veggies. Stir-fry for 3 – 5 minutes adding a pinch of salt. Move them to a corner and add the prawns and sauce mixture. Mix well and cook for about 4 – 5 minutes at medium-high heat until prawns are almost done. Mix in the veggies and cook for 2 more minutes. Do not overcook the veggies and prawns, veggies should retain their crunch. Serve this delicious prawn and vegetable stir-fry immediately with steamed rice / fried rice / noodles.


Keep all the ingredients ready before you start cooking. You can also use other veggies such as broccoli, Chinese cabbage, zucchini, baby corn etc.
