    Recipe Taken here: Stir-fried konnyaku with tuna and garlic chives

    I always love sautéed or stir fried vegetables. Since this recipe almost like Char Kueh Tiaw, I will most definitely try it.

    According to the Web: It will brown up a little bit in whatever oil you are using, and take on the flavor of the oil besides. This recipe used a combination of sesame oil and even butter.

    The recipe also used a can of tuna, which I dont think I'll use, as Im not a fan of tuna. Instead, I will probably be using sliced beef or chicken and some prawns.

    1 1lb or 450g pack of grey or white konnyaku
    1 Tbs. butter
    1 Tbs. dark sesame oil
    1 small can of water-packed tuna
    1 large bunch of garlic chives (nira), or substitute green onions and add a couple of cloves of garlic
    About 2 cups of bean sprouts
    Dried red pepper flakes
    Soy sauce
    Salt and pepper
    Cut up the konnyaku into slices, and dry the surface well with a paper towel. Cut the garlic chives into approximately 10cm/4 inch pieces. Drain the can of tuna very well and flake. Wash the bean sprouts.

    Preheat a wok. Once it's very hot add the konnyaku to the dry pan. It will make squeaky noises as it dries up on the surface. Add about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and half the butter and sesame oil, and sauté until the pieces are a bit brown on the ouside and the liquids are absorbed.

    Add the red pepper flakes (as little or as much as you like), and the rest of the butter and sesame oil. Add the tuna, then add the vegetables. Stir fry until the vegetables are done. Season with salt, pepper and a bit more soy sauce to your taste.
