Fried Long Bean with Pickle Radish

That was a night, we worked late and came home late…

Panda suggested me not to cook and we eat outside because both of us worked late. But finally I told him about my mood of cooking that night was like extremely high… and we both agree that we take some light good first. Then I will go home and cook the dinner.

So we had dinner after 9.30pm that night. This fried long bean is one of the dishes I had from my BigFish Cook Book. It is so simple… for a working lady like me, always hope to cook at home, but time is so tight. I bet this simple and easy recipe is definitely suit to me some times.

This idea was getting from the Fried Egg with Pickle Radish (Choy Bor). A lot of people like to have Fried Egg with Pickle Raddish to serve with Porridge. And I think this dish helps a lot to make our appetite better.
*Less Oil and Healthier! Can either serve with Rice or Porridge …
1. 4 cloves Garlic (grated)
2. 50g Pickle Radish - Choy Bor (grated)
3. Long Bean (sectioned)

1. Rinse Long Bean and sectioned.
2. Heat up 2 tbsps of oil, fry minced Garlic and minced Choy Bor until fragrant.
3. Pour in Long Bean and stir fry till cooked.
4. Add in sufficient salt, fry over high heat for 1 min.

Nice photos, but if you want to improve on that photo, place it near something where there is a matching colour contrast.

Well done!
