Q. I have just started a diet and would like to continue cooking stir-fries. Is there a way to reduce the fat in stir-fries without losing flavour?
Ans. A good way to reduce fat when frying anything is to use a heavy non-stick pan. Stir fries are a great way of cooking both meat and vegetables.
Reduce calories and fat by using less meat and more vegetables.
Slice the meat or vegetables thinly and cook in either water, lemon juice, soy sauce, mushroom sauce, oyster sauce, or any combination of these.
For a meat-free healthy low-fat meal, stir fry a mixture of vegetables in soy sauce and lemon juice, add a fistful of pinenuts and serve with egg-free noodles.
