Stir-fried snowpeas (with baby corn and carrot)

I hardly cook snowpeas but since I decided to cook lunch and dinner for hubby and Alicia for the whole week, I had to serve up a variety of vegetables to break the monotony. :P

Stir-fried snowpeas with baby corn and carrot


 Ingredients:

  • 1 packet snowpeas, pluck both ends to 'devein' 
  • 1/3 large carrot, slice thinly
  • 3 baby corn, cut diagonally, about 1.5cm long
  • garlic, minced
  • water




Method:

  1. Heat oil in wok. Fry the garlic till fragrant.
  2. Add in the carrot and corn and fry for about 2 minutes. Add some water if it's too dry.
  3. Add in snowpeas and a bit more water/stock and let simmer for a few minutes till it's cooked. Carrot should not have a raw taste and snowpeas should look very bright green.
  4. Add fish sauce to taste.
  5. Dish and serve.
You will realise that the gravy has a sweet taste even though no sugar was added - that's due to the sweetness of the vegetables! Carrots especially once cooked through (i.e. no raw taste), will add much sweetness to the gravy... and since baby corn and snowpeas are also 'sweet', that the gravy is sweet comes as no surprise! :)
