Stir Fry Gow Choy Fah ~ Garlic Chives Bud

A few weeks ago while visiting the Avondale Market for the very first time, I chanced upon these garlic chives. What a find ! I love gau choy fah which taste delish simply stir fried with some meat or prawns.

No doubt garlic chives are part of the chive family but they taste quite different to the English version which have a purple flower.

200g garlic chives bud (gow choy fah), cut to 2" length
10 raw prawns
1 clove garlic (mince)
½ cup water/stock

1 tsp cornflour + 1½ tsp soy sauce (mix together)

1. Heat wok on high heat with a Tbsp of oil. Add the garlic and prawns. Saute until prawns turn a slight pink.

2. Add the garlic chives, stir fry for a few seconds.

3. Add water and cover for 30 seconds (not too long as you want the veg to stay crunchy).

4. Remove cover and stir in cornflour mix to thicken the gravy. Dash of salt and season to taste.

5. Serve hot with rice.
