Ingredients (Serves 2)
1. Prawns – 15 large (Around 1 cup), cleaned
2. Oil – 1 tbsp
3. Garlic – 1 tsp, minced
Crushed red chilly flakes – 1/4 tsp
4. Onion – 1/4 cup, cubed
Bell pepper, I used green and yellow – 1/4 cup each
Mushroom – 1/2 cup, quartered
Spring onion, white part – 1/4 cup, sliced diagonally
5. Salt – To taste
For the sauce
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.
