Bok choy is classified as a cabbage, sometimes called as chinese cabbage, mustard cabbage, chinese celery or peking cabbage. It has glossy dark green leaves and thick and crisp white stalks in loose head. It has as light , sweet flavour, crispy texture and good nutritional values.

Bok choy is very nutritios, it is high in vitamin A,C rich in potassium and calcium. They similarly tastes like swiss chard. It tastes so good when lightly cooked over cooking spoils the tastes. Bok choy is one of those good vegetable that can be quick cooked, steamed or stir fried. Baby bok choy is also available in the market anything can be used and cook like swiss chard.

Ingredients :

Bok choy - 1 packet
Garlic - 4 crushed
Red chilli flakes or pepper anything of ur choice.
Roasted Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Sesame oil - 1/4 tsp (optional if u like the flavour add it atlast)

Method :

1. Wash the bok choy and cut the leafy portion and stems seperately into big pieces 3/4 inch atleast . Too thin makes watery.
2. Heat oil in the frying pan and add crushed garlic and red chilli flakes.
3. Then first add stems and stir fry for just few seconds , then add the green part.
4. Saute for few seconds add salt and pepper. Now add sesame oil and seeds.
5. Serve hot with Jasmine rice or fried rice or even u can eat like a snack too.

Variation :

1. To get the saucy consistency you can add the cornflour mixture.
2. You can also make gobi manchurian sauce and add the fried greens to it tastes so yummy , refer the gobi manchurian sauce in my post. And serve it with vegetable noodles.
3. This bokchoy can be substituted by swiss chard or kale.
4. Do not saute for too long until water is absorbed .. it becomes soggy and spoils the crunchiness.
