STIR-FRIED FRENCH BEANS WITH DRIED SHRIMPS



All this dish requires is a quick stir-fry. You want to retain the crunchness and resilient of the French beans; frying too long will turn your vegetable into tint of yellow. You don't have to use the expensive dreid shrimps; the tiniest and cheapest ones will do - saves you the trouble of cutting them into smaller pieces.

INGREDIENTS


200 gm. French Beans (ends removed)
1 Red Chilli (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp. Dried Shrimps
2 Cloves Garlic (thinly sliced)
Cooking Oil
Salt



METHOD

  1. In a wok, fill enough water to boil the French beans. Set flame to high. Add 2 tablespoon of cooking oil and a teaspoon of salt.Cut garlic into slivers, and chilli into thin strips diagonally.

  2. When water comes to a boil, put in the French beans, and have them blanched (less than a minute). Remove and drain in a colander.

  3. Pour away water from wok; when dry (over medium flame), add in 3 tablespoons of cooking oil around the parameter of the wok and let it flow down, coating the wok.

  4. Fry the dried shrimps and chilli; tossing and turning to prevent burning.

  5. As the dried shrimps start to sizzle, turn flame to high, put in the garlic and quick fry for a few seconds before putting in the French beans. Have the beans thoroughly coated with the shrimp chilli oil.

  6. Add in salt to taste. Remove and serve immediately.
