stir fried cabbage

Stir fried cabbage

Take 1/4 of a large nappa cabbage and cut into 2‚ÄĚstrips, separating the harder white bits from the green leafy bits. Sprinkle with 1 tsp white sugar.
Heat 2 Tbsp peanut oil in a large frying pan on high and add a few whole dried chilies (totally up to you how many. Or at all), frying until they puff a bit and darken in colour, add 2 cloves roughly chopped garlic and stir. Add the harder white cabbage bits and stir often for about 45 seconds to a minute. It should de sizzling quite a bit by now.
Add the cabbage leafy part and stir in about 3/4 tbsp soy and a bit more sugar.
Taste and add more soy / sugar , if necessary.

Frying the chilies is a smoky procedure. Best to open a window when doing this.
Also good with a splash of vinegar in it.
