Sweet and Sour Mushroom Stir Fry

This very quick, simple and colourful stir fry dish is made up of a mix of crunchy and juicy veggies – in a sweet n sour sauce.

  • Heat a pan with a drizzle of olive oil and sauté some sliced mushrooms with turmeric, chilli powder and salt until caramelised and soft. Set aside.

  • Place the same pan with a drizzle of oil over medium heat, add the 2 cloves of minced garlic and a knob of minced ginger to the oil and sauté for two minutes. 

  • Add 1 wedged onion, 2 grated carrots, 1 sliced pepper and 3 wedged tomatoes to the pan. Sauté until the peppers turn slightly soft over medium heat. 5-10 minutes. 

  • Pour in 4 tablespoons of tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce and 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes (optional) and cook over medium heat, 5-7 minutes. Once the onion and peppers turn soft with the sauce mixture, add the mushrooms to the pan. Cook until the sauce is thickened.

  • Season to taste. Serve with cooked rice, and garnish with some chopped coriander and a dollop of yogurt of your choice.

CHEF’S TIP: 

You can add animal protein to this dish. Cubed fish or chicken would work very well here. Simply stir through in the final few minutes until cooked through.
