This dish I've learnt from my mother in law. I love the way she makes it. It's my absolute favourite. Just give me plain rice and a bowl of these veggies and I'm a happy girl! It goes with almost any dish.
This veggie dish is super easy to make ...........just look at the ingredients!! Nothing much right? But its so delicious! 

The best part is that the veggies are so crunchy! So make sure you keep an eye on that ! If you over cook it it will lose its crunchiness and it wont taste too great! dont skip the onions too! love the crunchiness of that that too! the dish gets its flavour from the garlic and oyster sauce.


french beans, cut diagonally into 1 inch pieces - 2 cups 
carrots,cut into 2 inch pieces (slightly thin) -1 
broccoli, cut into small florets - 1
soda bicarb - a pinch(optional)
oil to saute
onion, cut into big cubes - 1
garlic, pounded - 8 cloves
sugar- 1/4 tsp
oyster sauce - 3 tbsps
salt and pepper to taste

  • Boil some water in a big pan(enough to fit all the veggies).
  • Once it has come to a boil, add the carrots first. You can add in the soda to retain the colour of the veggies. But it is optional.
  • After a  minute, add in the broccoli and beans and boil for another 2 minutes. 
  • Switch off the flame and drain. Rinse under running water and keep aside.
  • In a wok, heat the oil.
  • Add in the garlic and saute for a few minutes.
  • Just before the garlic changes colour, add in the onions.
  • Stir on low flame for 1 minute.
  • Add in the veggies. Season with salt (dont add too much because oyster sauce is salty) and pepper. Add in the sugar too.
  • Still on low flame add in the oyster sauce and mix well. Check for salt and remove from the flame. Don't cook too much. We need the veggies to retain its crunch.
  • The veggies are already a bit cooked. So no need to cook them too much otherwise it will lose its crunch.
