ABOUT Chicken Stir Fry with Mixed Vegetables RECIPE

A quick stir fry recipe which can be made impromptu for unexpected guests. For this stir fry, I have made use of Sambal Olek, a spicy chilli paste of Malaysia. The addition of chicken is optional for vegetarians as this dish has a variety of vegetables used.
