Chinese style Sweet n Sour Vegetable

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

I am a big fan of Chinese food. One such day when I was highly craving for some Chinese food, made this combo of Sweet n sour Vegetable with some Chinese style Fried rice.The fried rice recipe is already in my blog. So today sharing this sweet n sour vegetable recipe, which goes very well together, in fact this is my most favorite combo.




This Sweet n Sour Vegetable is very easy to prepare and you can use any vegetable of your choice, specially carrot, green beans, mushroom, capsicum, Cauliflower go very well in this recipe. I used whatever I had in my refrigerator that day and my craving was satisfied. The sweetness comes in this dish from tomato sauce and the sourness comes from the soy sauce and vinegar. This dish is not spicy at all and kids can easily have it.This goes very well with Vegetable fried rice or Malacca(malaysian) fried rice or Mee Goreng(Stir-fried Veg noodles)
