#cambodianfood #khmerfood

I am an aspiring domestic goddess and my culinary skills can be best regarded as utilitarian. My ambitious projects turn out to be disasters of catastrophic proportions and my hastily rustled meals are the real stars. It had not always been like this and there had been a time when I had found cooking to be seriously soothing.

However, with changing roles, times and life demands, work had taken priority and my profession had not nurtured my dream of being a good, creative cook. But, till today, I love the colours, sights and smells of a fresh wet market and aroma of food is simply orgiastic for me. The last few years have been professionally very hectic for me and time and continents have raced at breakneck speed. 2015 have been kinder and thus once again, I have time to indulge in my favourite activities.

The recipe I saw on Temple of Thai which is one of my favorite sites for Thai recipes.

Ingredients

  • Approx. 2 cups of cut up chinese morning glory . cut 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, smashed with the side of a cleaver or knife
  • 3 tblsp canola or other vegetable oil
  • 1 tblsp of fish sauce  The fish sauce adds salty taste so add more if want more salt.
  • 2 tblsp of Thai soy sauce
  • 2 tblsp of Thai oyster sauce
  • 1/3 tsp sugar  I add more sugar and use brown cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

Preparation

  1. Heat oil until hot, over medium-high heat (not smoking though). Add the garlic. Immediately, add the cut up vegetables. Cook, stirring constantly until cooked slightly, approximately 2 minutes, depending on the vegetable.
  2. Add fish sauce, soy sauce, and oyster sauce. Add water and sugar.
  3. Continue to stir fry until the vegetable is cooked through. Approximately another 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, so the vegetable is still somewhat firm. Remove from heat.

Serves 2-4.
