Stir-Fry Bok Choy


This is an example of simple stir-frying vegetables at home. My style of cooking dishes that requires quick stir-frying with high heat will never fail me. Always begin with a low heat when cooking the garlic or shallots and remove them and mix in again later. This way, you will never burn your garlic or shallots and the oil would be fragrant too! Your vegetables or dishes will always turns out perfect! In fact the same method are use for all my fried rice, like the Pineapple Fried Rice.

Stir-Fry Bok Choy

Ingredients

600 to 700 g Bok Choy
3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 Tbsp Peanut Oil
3 to 4 Tbsp Chicken Stock or Water
Sea Salt to taste

Method

Cleaned and cut the bok choy into small size. Leave whole or halved if they are small.

Heat the oil and cook the garlic in a low heat until translucent. Set the garlic aside.

Turn the heat on high and add the bok choy and give it a quick stir. Then add the garlic, oyster sauce, chicken stock or water and season with sea salt. Serve immediately.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
