Stir Fry Yam Strips,Beancurd Puff And Wood Ear Fungus

This recipe is from one of the chinese food magazines I bought.  Love it the moment my eyes caught the picture on one of the pages. Love the fact that it has yam in the dish. My all time favorite tuber. So deliciously healthy for it contains strips of carrots, beancurd puff,  wood ear fungus and spring onions and strips of chicken breast and not to forget the star of this dish, yam strips.  An easy to prepare dish that takes less than 30 mins to whip up.  This is so good....the fluffy yam strips with the crunchy carrots and wood ear fungus really give this dish the thumbs up.  Never knew a simple stir fry like this could taste so good.  A light seasoning sauce is all it needed to finish the dish.  Try it to believe tastes as good as it looks :)

fry the yam strips in two tbsp of hot oil till crisps and cooked

the yam strips needed to be fried in oil till crisps before stir frying
so that it retain its form after stir frying with the
other ingredients

lightly stir fry the chicken strips with chopped garlic till cooked
before adding in the rest of the ingredients

add in the carrot strips, wood ear fungus strips, beancurd puff
and spring onions

add in the cooked yam strips and stir fry till well
combined...lastly add in the light seasoning mixture
give it a quick stir fry and dish up
as soon as the seasoning mixture thickens

yummy !
