If you have ever tried a frozen vegetable stir fry in the past, you will understand what I mean just by reading the recipe.
Once you have made this easy vegetable stir fry for yourself you will never darken your kitchen door with frozen stir fries again, what a relief…

Khwanjai’s Top Tips:
Classic lesson to be learned here, watch how Khwanjai waits because the oil wasn’t hot enough when she chucked in the garlic! Alternatively if you have it too hot, don’t panic just press on and chuck the veggies in quicker which will cool down the wok immediately.
Look out for the cold water trick as Khwanjai removes the veggies, it’s not clear as she explains (struggling to say crunchy, bless her) but fast cooling helps the veggies stay crisp and still cooked through.
Print the recipe so you can make your own notes. Khwanjai still does this every time she tries something new especially with a versatile recipe like this and she experiments.
Not much else to say except, enjoy this fantastic recipe. Turn the volume up, I have no idea why but my microphone didn’t like me in a couple of spots whilst not effecting Khwanjai and she’s usually the quiet one, very strange indeed.
The flavours in this recipe are blooming marvellous, just try it and you’ll see.
