Curry Flavored Stir Fry Veggies - 咖哩炒青蔬

How do you make stir fry vegetables?
Usually I'm pretty light on the seasonings for this dish,
Salt, pepper, sometimes with some soy sauce or ponzu sauce,
But after a while, I mean like months of the same stir fry veggies...
I finally got kind of sick of it...well...let me put it this way...I wanna try something new,
Or at least something "heavier."

So here it is, stir fry veggies with curry!-


1 pack of bean sprouts
1 pack of bunashimeji mushrooms (or other kind of mushrooms) (stemmed)
1/2 of sliced onion
1 can of chopped tomatoes or 1 large fresh tomatoes (peeled, cubed)
2 spicy curry cubes
Some toasted sesame seeds
Some dried seaweed flakes
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
Olive oil


Drizzle some olive oil in the pan, toss in sliced onions and sprinkle some salt and pepper,
Cook till the onions turned translucent,
Add the mushrooms, bean sprouts, and some soy sauce,
Give it a quick stir, cook for about 1 minute.

Add the chopped tomatoes to the mixture,
I used canned roasted tomatoes, it's easier and gives more flavor to the dish,
But fresh tomatoes work too, just need to cook a little bit longer till it softens.

have a small pot ready, toss in the curry cubes and pour about 1/3 cup of water,
Turn to medium heat, stir it constantly so the curry won't burned.

Transfer the curry sauce to the veggie mixture, mix them well,
That's about it, your heavy flavored stir fry dish is ready.
Sprinkle some sesame seeds and seaweed flakes before serving.
This makes a perfect heavy donburi too!
