Popular as it might be, I am sure you must be striking off Schezuan-style stir-fries from your personal menu as it is most often laden with oodles of oil. This one is made with just 2 tsp of oil and uses loads of veggies, making it not just visually-appealing but also strikingly tasty and spicy!

Select vegetables that are easily available, and do not worry if you do not find a veggie or two. Vegetables like broccoli, capsicum and snow peas contain vitamin C, antioxidants and immune-boosters that fight infections. To retain all of it, ensure that you do not overcook the veggies. Relish this luscious dish with plain cooked kodri or cooked whole wheat noodles .
