Yield: persons 

Preparation Time: - ½ hour

Step 1. Pre-soak the dried shiitake mushrooms and slice the mushrooms into strips. Trim off the top of the carrot and peel off the carrot skin. Cut the carrot to about 4 fingers wide and then cut into half. Half the carrot again into smaller pieces then slice the carrot into thin strips. 

Step 2. Peel off the skin of the Chinese Yam. Remove both ends of the Chinese Yam and cut it into slices. Soak the sliced yams in water to avoid oxidation. Next, cut away the stems of the chives and cut the chives into 2-inch pieces. 

Step 3. Slice off the ginger skin and cut the ginger into thin slices. Trim off the stem end from the garlic cloves. Smash the cloves with the side of your knife and chop garlic into finely chopped pieces.

Step 4. Heat up the pan and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add in the chopped garlic and sliced ginger and stir-fry until they start to turn golden-brown. Add in the sliced Chinese Yams and continue to stir-fry. Next, add in the sliced carrot strips, sliced mushroom strips, black fungus, red dates and chives. Continue to stir-fry. Then, add in 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of oyster sauce, 1.5 teaspoons of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of water. Mix well and stir-fry for 10 minutes. Lastly, add in 1 teaspoon of pepper and 0.5 teaspoon of chili flakes.

Step 5. Continue to stir-fry and once the Chinese Yam turns soft and golden-brown, it is ready to serve!
