Capcay // Vegetables stirfry


Bored with boiled veggies? well, i have this recipe for your solution (he he... advertising mode on).
This dish originally adapted from Chinese food, but everyone in Indonesian knew it, many Chinese live there and share the recipe with us.

Like in many country you can always find China town, as well as in the capital city of Indonesia (Jakarta, where my parents live) there are huge Chinese population, we get along very well and Indonesian cook and eat Chinese food a lot, except for food that contain some pork (Muslim not allow to eat pork, and many Indonesian are Muslim).

Anyway, this food is healthy yet delicious, not contains any meat or eggs. My daughter like it too, By the way, I'm happy that we started to have dinner together now as a family in the dining table, Ellyn getting better at holding her spoon and put it on her mouth, so save me time, don't have to feed her anymore :)

Note: you can add any vegetables you like like broccoli or Zukini

originally, capjay means 10 ingredients that could be veggies n meats but then who care with counting the ten and following the rule if less than ten still make a delicious dish?
