Stir-Fried Potato

Another simple and easy to put together dish! This is quite a common Chinese home-style dish that is usually cooked with minced meat. Add in some vegetarian ham or vegetarian meat, if desired. If not, carrot can be added to lend its sweetness to this dish.

Preparation: 5 mins, Cooking time: 20 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 350g potatoes, sliced
° 2 cloves garlic or 2 slices ginger, finely chopped
° 1 tablespoon olive oil
° 275ml water
° 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
° 1 tablespoon vegetarian oyster sauce
° freshly ground black pepper, to taste
° a small handful fresh coriander leaves or spring onion, for garnish

Method
1. Heat oil in a wok. Add the garlic or ginger and fry for 1 minute.
2. Add the potatoes and stir-fry briskly for a moment.
3. Pour in the water. Stir in the light soy sauce and vegetarian oyster sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes or till the potatoes are soften. If the sauce dries up, add a little bit of water.
4. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with coriander leaves or spring onion and serve immediately.

Hi SF

You are right.

I am still struggling with the photo. It could also be my shaky hand, plus the steam from the food, i still could not pinpoint exactly where i go wrong. Must try harder :p
