3-  Add the Carrots first. Fry for a minute and then add cabbage, capsicum, beans, and leaks one by one (you have to add all the other veggies if you’re using them) and fry them for 3 minutes at high flame. Keep stirring the veggies.
4-  Add the tofu pieces and stir.
5-  Now, make a mix of vinegar, soya sauce, red chilly sauce, green chilly sauce, corn flour, and some water together, and add the mix to the veggies. Mix very well.
6-  Now, Add 5 cups of water to the pan and mix everything. Time to add salt and pepper now. Let the curry boil. Cook for another 5 minutes or till the gravy turns to thicken. Lower the flame and cook for just another two minutes.
7-  Switch off the gas and serve the Chinese Mixed Veg Curry immediately with the Chinese Veg Hakka Noodles.
