For the Stir Fry Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce or Vegan Mushroom Oyster Sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon White Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cornflour
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¾ teaspoon Sugar

For the Veg Stir Fry

  • 1.5 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Celery
  • ½ cup sliced Onion
  • 1 cup Broccoli florets
  • 1 cup thickly sliced Carrot
  • 1 cup cubed Bell Pepper
  • 1 cup cubed Zucchini
  • 1 cup Mushrooms halved
  • 2 Bok Choy divided into stems and leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Spring Onions for garnishing


  • Whisk together all the ingredients mentioned under sauce and set this aside.
  • Blanch broccoli and carrot in boiling hot water for two minutes to par cook them. This way they still remain crunchy, but don't taste raw in the stir fry. Drain and set aside.
  • In a wok, heat oil and add chopped ginger, garlic and celery. Stir fry for a minute and then add sliced onions. Cook on high heat for another minute and add bell peppers and zucchini. Stir fry for a minute and add mushrooms and bok choy stem. Cook for another minute
  • Add par cooked broccoli and carrots and the sauce. Stir fry for 2 minutes till the sauce thickens and becomes slightly translucent. Sprinkle spring onions on top and serve hot.



  1. If you'd like more sauce, increase the water by ¼ cup.
  2. You can also use other vegetables in the recipe including snow peas, carrots, beans and mushrooms.
  3. This dish can easily be made with readily available stir fry sauces as well. Directly use the packaged stir fry sauce in place of the sauce ingredients mentioned here. 
  4. Stir fry all the ingredients on high heat as far as possible.
  5. Finish the prep work before you start cooking as this dish comes together very quickly. It's also made on a high flame and the ingredients cook much faster.
