INDONESIAN STYLE VEGETABLE STIR-FRY / CAP CHAY

Cap Chay in Hokkian language (one of many dialects spoken among Asian communities) means everything mixed together. Which is literally what this dish is all about. It’s a medley of vegetable stir-fry and you are welcome to throw any vegetable you want to make Cap Cay. Some seafood and meat are usually also used to accompany this veggie stir-fry. I love the thick glistening gravy (thanks to corn starch) on the dish too. It is another popular vegetable stir-fry that I grew up eating. Usually served pipping hot with a bowl of steamed white rice and other meat dishes, this cap chay is really satisfying and healthy at the same time. Love the colors too!
