Stir Fried Kai-Lan (Chinese Broccoli) In Oyster Sauce


Blanched kai lan with oyster sauce is the easiest. But if you like to elevate extra flavours, try this Nava's special style - kai lan with a sauce made with garlic, dried prawns, oyster sauce and vinegar.


Ingredients
150g kai-lan - split stems into two and cut all together with the leaves in 1 inch length
Few drops of oil

For the Sauce
5 garlic - chopped
1 tbsp dried shrimps/prawns - soaked for 10 mins and drained
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar (or any other)
3 tbsp oil

Method:
Boil 3 cups of water in a pan.
Add drops of  oil and kai lan.
Just about 2-3 min, drain off the water and plunge kailan in cold water.
Gently squeeze out the water from kai lan and put on a plate. .
Heat the 3 tbsp of olive oil and when heated, add shrimps and fry to a crunchy texture.
Add garlic and stir.
Pour in oyster sauce and balsamic vinegar
Stir to combine and top over kai lan.
