Notes

Prepare all the vegetables ahead: This dish comes out very quickly once you start the stir-frying process. Ensure you prepare all the veggies ahead, so they’re ready to go when you need to throw them into the wok and prevent them from burning.

Cut the veggies into different shapes: Cutting the vegetables into different shapes adds texture to the dish.

Don’t overcook the veggies: You want your veggies tender but still crispy. Keep an eye on it, and don’t let them overcook.

Use a large wok to get the best results: It won’t be easy to toss all the ingredients together on a small pan.
