Mix the ingredients for the sauce together and set aside.

Don’t fry all the vegetables in one pot as some may take longer to cook. 

Heat 2 tbsp of cooking oil in your wok over high heat. Add the garlic, spring onion, and chilli. Stir for around 2 minutes, then mix in the sauce and cook for a further 2 minutes or until boiling. 

Add in cornflour and water mix and 1 tbsp cooking oil. 

Add the sauce, and then add the fried vegetables. Keep the fire on and stir the vegetables so they are well coated with the sauce. Transfer to a plate.
