Broccoli and Carrot Stir Fry
Wanting to make something quick for lunch, here I was standing in front of my fridge, scratching my head over what to make for lunch, just then... my little son came running (which he always does whenever I open the fridge to close it!) and  picked   up the broccoli saying- I want thees(this)!

Yes, broccoli is one veggie  he loves in more or less any dish. I wanted to make something we could eat as a main course and what else could be easier than a stir fry which by definition itself is a method of quick cooking food. I made broccoli and carrot stir fry  in a simple and light garlic sauce. It was healthy, simple and yet so satisfying- he loved it and ate it happily!


  • Broccoli-1 bunch(cut into florets)
  • Carrots- 2 small cut into rounds
  • Onion -half medium(sliced thickly)
  • Garlic- 1 tbsp grated
  • Soy sauce- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chili sauce-1 teaspoon- (I used Ching's secret red chili sauce)
  • Dried crushed basil- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Red wine  vinegar(optional)- 1/2 teaspoon
  • freshly crushed pepper- to taste
  • Water- 2 tablespoon
  • Salt- to taste


  • Boil carrots and broccoli just till al dente, drain and keep aside
  • Mix soy sauce, chili sauce, vinegar and water, mix well and keep aside.
  • Now heat oil in  pan(preferably a non stick or cast iron pan)
  • When oil is hot, add garlic, stir for a few second.
  • Add onions, cook for a min on high heat , then add all the veggies and stir on high heat for few more minutes.
  • Add the sauce mixture, salt, pepper and basil.
  • Cook on medium high heat till done.
  • Serve  hot with rice or noodles!

  6. Hi! I quadrupled the amounts for the sauce, concerned there wouldn't be enough (we like things rather saucy!) and added celery at the same time as the onions. This was a great and so so simple recipe! Certainly improved my improvised stir frys in the past -- which are now a thing of the past.THANKS! :)
