A very popular starter in Chinese cuisine, this crisp, delicious dish is also quite convenient and quick to prepare. While there are many ways of preparing this popular starter, here we have coated the veggie strips with a thick and flavourful batter before deep-frying them.


The fried veggies are then quickly sautéed with tongue-tickling Schezuan sauce, spring onions and garlic, to impart a typical Oriental flavour. It is important to make the cooking pan smoking hot before sautéing the fried veggies, in order to retain their crispness; if the pan is not hot enough, these will get soggy.


Serve the Crispy Fried Vegetables fresh off the Pan , to savor the right mix of crispness and sauciness.

I always wondered if we can make restaurant style veg crispy at home. This recipe is just to the mark. I tied this recipe and the result is just like what we get in restaurants. You need to put in a little effort to make this but the ultimate outcome is totally worth it.
