STIR-FRIED LONG BEANS WITH DRIED ANCHOVIES



This is minimalist stir-frying, with anchovies being the main ingredient to flavor the dish. As ingredients go, it looks deceptively blend. But it tastes anything, but bland.



INGREDIENTS


150 gm. Long Beans
1 Red Chilli (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp Dried Anchovies
2 Cloves Garlic (thinly sliced)
Cooking Oil
Salt



METHOD

  1. Wash and cut off both ends of the beans. Cut beans into 3" length.
  2. Cut garlic into slivers, and chilli into thin strips diagonally.
  3. Put 3-4 tbsp. oil around the rim of the wok, and let it slide to the bottom, coating the whole wok on high heat.
  4. Throw in garlic, chilli and anchovies, and quick stir around for few seconds. Before the garlic turns golden, put in the beans. Toss the bean to coat thoroughly.
  5. Add 1/4 cup of water, and salt to taste. Toss again and cover the wok for few seconds.
  6. When steam comes out of the side of lid, give the veg. a few more tosses before serving.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...
