Chinese Vegetable Stir Fry ( Vegan - Thursdays )


Nowadays we all are aware of the the importance of vegetables in our diet. To include fruits and vegetables of different colours is the need of the day as they provide us variety of  vitamins n nutrients .

For e.g  red colour in fruits n vegetables means they are rich in lycopene , whereas orange colour is an indicator of the presence of  beta-carotene. Greens are rich in chlorophyll and purple coloured food gives us Vit - C.

So make sure to have at least 2 to 3 different coloured fruits and vegetables daily to keep fit.
This simple and colourful stir fry can be made with any combinations that you like. Just make sure to include as many different colours as possible .

This stir fry is very easy to make and can be had with noodles, rotis or even pulavs. Even kids who are otherwise fussy over eating vegetables enjoy this dish due to its chinese way of preparation.
