Fancy having some simple stir-fried vegetable for dinner? If yes, do try this simple and easy stir-fried dish. If you can't get hold of long beans, you may consider using some french beans (green beans) instead. Have a go and happy cooking ;-)

2 tsp Oyster Sauce
2 tsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
A few drizzle of Sesame Oil

In a wok, heat the peanut oil and fry the tofu until light golden brown in color. Drain well on a paper towel.

Then add the garlic and preserved radish and cook until fragrant. Mix in the long beans and tofu and continue frying for 2 minutes.

  1. My mom used to cook this dish for us. She will add some peanuts to it too. I really miss eating this.

  2. @ICook4Fun: What a great idea! Thanks and I will try adding some peanuts next time ;)

  3. Hi, can I get your advise on the preserved radish (choy poh).
    I'm confused with the many types sold & unsure which to buy for this recipe.
    1) Minced sweet preserved radish
    2) Minced salty preserved radish
    3) Preserved radish strips


  4. @Debby: #3 Preserved radish strips.

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.
