I tried it last night and it tasted good. The Chinese sauces with colorful veggies made our mouth water as soon as it hits the table. The aroma that came while cooking it is too tempting. And I really loved the cooking part of this exciting dish.

It gets an extra bit of crunch with a garnish of deep fried crispy noodles. A mix of finely chopped nutritious veggies sauteed along with Chinese sauces, cooked in flavorful vegetable stock and thickened with corn flour.
