Stir-fried Nai Bai

   

Nai Bai Stir Fry

Nai Bai 奶白菜 (Bok Choy Sum/Dwarf or Baby Pak Choi/Milk Cabbage – thanks to commenters for the English names) is my favourite Chinese green at the moment. The leaves are curl, wrinkled and dark green with short stems resembling a miniature baby bok choy. We love this vegetable for its leafy and crunchy texture after cooking, and a simple plate of stir-fried Nai Bai (清炒奶白菜) makes its appearance on our dinner table almost weekly. This is a quick stir-fry and I usually serve it with a meat side dish such as ginger scallions pork or chicken, and steamed rice for a simple Chinese home-cooked meal. If you have not tried this vegetable before, do look out for it as it is really delicious. I like to keep my Chinese vegetable stir-fry minimum with garlic, ginger, salt and Chinese wine. But if you like to add depth and extra deliciousness to a Chinese vegetable stir-fry, add ikan bilis powder and fried lard for incredible flavour.

    You can try adding wolf berries. It adds color to the dish.
    I did another variation of the dish. Check out lazyhomecooking.wordpress.com

      Hi Shazy, if you do not consume alcohol or use them in cooking, feel free to omit the wine. There is no need to substitute.
