Stir-fried Pea Sprouts with Belacan

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Pea sprouts or oftenly called Dou Miao. I get to know this vegetable few years back. This vegetable is one of the frequently ordered stir-fry vege dishes that we ate when we were eating out in the Chinese 'Dai Chou' places. One of the commonly cooking method for them will be simple stir-fry with garlic. So for tonight dinner, I tried to be more adventurous with them - by using belacan. Result - it was similar to stir-fried kangkung with belacan. Yummy!


200g pea sprouts
1 tbsp dried shrimps, soaked, and minced:
1 onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 red chillies, seeded (optional)
1 1/2 tbsp belacan granules
salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp chicken stock

  1. Heat wok over high heat until hot, then add in oil.
  2. Stir fry dried shrimps until aromatic. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir-fry well.
  3. Put in pea sprouts and stir-fry briskly for one to two minutes.
  4. Add seasoning to mix.
  5. Dish out and serve hot.
