Fabulous Friday Flavour: Spicy Stir Fry Vegetables with Egg

After several days in Singapore and stuffing our faces with fabulous home-made food, I decided to do something simple from whatever leftovers I can find in the fridge.

Turned out, I had some fresh chillies, a bunch of Chinese cabbages, a couple of taters and a single, lone egg. So here we go with an easy, no-fuss, left-over ingredient-dump stir fry!

  2. 1 garlic, pressed
  3. 5-6 fresh red chillies
  4. Half an inch fresh tumeric, remove skin

  2. Put the cut potatoes in a (microwaveable) bowl of water and put them in the microwave oven for 5 minutes
  3. While waiting for the potatoes, pound shallot, garlic, tumeric and chillies together. Or use a hand blender and blend them coarsely. Set aside
  4. Heat up olive oil in a pan
  5. Throw in the pounded ingredients into the hot oil and fry for about 2 minutes. Then add in the chicken stock cube. Be careful not to burn it
  6. Dump the cut-up cabbages in the pan. Cover with a lid for 2-3 minutes then stir
  7. Drain the water from the potatoes and then add into the pan.Add in dried basil. Stir and cook for another 2-3 minutes
  8. Crack the egg into the pan. Leave it for about 5-10 seconds and then stir well
  9. Make sure that the potatoes are cooked - check if they are soft before turning off the heat
  10. Serve!

Quick, simple, healthy and tasted as good as it looks. At least I think so.
