Thai Stir fried Vegetable Recipe is a quick mixed vegetable stir fry in the thai red curry spices, healthy to eat. Perfect for busy weeknight dinner. Stir Frying is a Chinese technique to cook food in wok on high flame, it induces smoky flavor in food and prevents food from getting over cooked. Stir fried dishes has a crunch in them and too much oil is not used to achieve that crunchiness. Whenever I have baskets full of different colorful vegetables Thai Stir Fried Vegetable is the first thing in my menu because for me it is a perfect way to eat loads of vegetables and it compliments most of the curry dishes so well that I can’t resist the temptation of making it.
I love my stir fry full of colors, vegetables and meat, while making stir fry you can play around with ingredients and very few dishes gives this leverage, every time I make stir fry the combination of ingredients is all together different, you can add chicken, bacon, prawns or zucchini, bell peppers, in short whatever you like but remember the thumb rule do not add pulpy or squashy vegetables. My family is a die heart fan of Asian food so most of the days my kitchen is full of smoky aroma and my little one Momo keeps on sneezing around, so he finally gets his peace in terrace among his green friends. The same day I made Chinese Chicken Salad as well and we ate trucks of vegetables in both the dishes and at last husband made the statement, “what a veggie friday.”
