Stir-frying is a Chinese cooking technique in which the food is cooked in high heat and stirred continuously. This technique was followed when the cooking materials were limited and food should be cooked fast with minimum fuel, which later turned out to be healthy.

Vegetable stir-fry is a wholesome food done in minutes and has all essential nutrients. Paneer/ tofu is rich in protein and adds more to the plate. The paneer/ tofu and vegetables are stir-fried in hoisin sauce which brings in more flavor to the dish.  It can be served with rice/ noodles.
