Chap Cai- Mixed Vegetable Stew With Seafood

A popular vegetarian mixed vegetable stew which is normally eaten with plain rice or porridge among the locals and I can't believe that I haven't even posted about it yet.

Being Asian I just love these stir-fry very much. The taste of this dish is just desirable and so versatile. the simplest way to cook it is just ," Chop up all your favorite vegetable with any kind of meat-saute and serve.In seconds a delicious plate of vegetables with nutrients would be ready to to be served...What are u waiting for-rush to the kitchen-chop chop and fill up ur loved ones tummy with Chap Chye. Ok guys time for me to say bye,,see ya all with another dish from my kitchen to your soon!!!
