Have you tried preparing stir fries for fried rice and noodles at home? I got to learn and taste 3 interesting recipes by Executive Chef Myo, Chef Rabi and Chef Santosh from HIGH ULTRA LOUNGE at stir fry master class session.  

Do you know food historians say that stir fries existed during HAN DYNASTY in 206 B.C. Although there are no surviving records of Han dynasty stir frying, archaeological evidence of woks and the tendency to slice food thinly indicate that the technique was likely used for cooking.

The term "stir-fry" was introduced into the English language in Buwei Yang Chao's book How to Cook and Eat in Chinese (1945), to describe the chǎo technique. Our ancestors have experimented many dishes without any foodshows and television knowledge hats off to the creative work. 

Fast forwarding to 2016 stir fried veggies, prawns and chicken are considered to be power packed nutritious meal on the go. Stir fries are easy to prepare and tastes good.

There is a prepup to prepare any dish for stir fries one has to chop all the veggies finely and in different shapes wash it in lukewarm water and vinegar, steam cook or blanch and reserve.
