That is, you do not overcook them and lose the nutrients such as the vitamins. The vegetables taste great too.

Once you know the vegetable stir fry recipe, you can make your own variations too. Add the vegetables you like or have in your pantry or omit the vegetables that you don't like or don't have.

For this stir fry recipe, you can use a mixture of your favorite vegetables such as onions, beans, carrots, peas, capsicum, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, peppers of different colors, egg plant etc.

Cut all the vegetables in bite size pieces. Cut them of the same size too.

The dish looks very inviting with all those colorful vegetables.

You do not need all the above mentioned vegetables every time. You can use 3-4 of them at a time.

I like to use cabbage, onions, carrots and capsicums and that is what I am using in the recipe below.

  • Or you may add one or two green or red chilies. Slit the chillis in half and add them along with chopped onions.
  • Add a little red chili paste along with ginger garlic. This will change the color of the stir fry a little.
