This recipe is especially requested by my vegetarian friends ! 🙂

My hubby and kiddo love Chinese food ! Given an option, my son would drag us all to a restaurant every weekend. But in an attempt to make Chinese meals healthier, I started making them at home. That way, I know exactly what is being consumed by my precious family !
1 cup Soya nuggets
2 small onions, finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
2 green chilies, finely chopped
6-7 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 large capsicum, chopped
2 tsp of soya sauce
2-3 tsp of Black Bean Sauce
2 tsp corn flour, diluted in half cup water
Chopped parsley and chives for garnish
2 tsp of black pepper
Salt to taste
Cook the nuggets by boiling them for around 5 minutes and then strain the water. Keep aside.
Marinate the cooked soya nuggets, with a tsp corn flour, 1 tsp soya sauce, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp of black bean sauce and salt. Let it rest for 30 minutes.
In a thick bottomed wok, heat some olive oil and fry the marinated soya nuggets on medium flame till they are crispy on the outside. Keep aside.
Next, fry the chopped garlic and chopped chillies till they are light brown. Add the chopped onions and fry till the onions leave colour.
Now, that the base of the dish is ready, sauté the capsicum and tomatoes for around 3-4 minutes till they become soft.
Add the remaining sauces, black pepper and the cornflour to the wok. Toss to cover completely.
Add the fried soya nuggets and let it simmer for around 2 minutes. Garnish with some chopped parsley and chives.
Enjoy this homemade healthy Chinese delight with either noodles, fried rice or just as a starter !
