Western cooks may consider Oriental cooking beyond their reach. This simple recipe will allow the novice to create the unique flavor of Chinese food in a Wok or skillet right in your home kitchen, and best of all, the ingredients may be found in the specialty food section of any large supermarket or Oriental store.


  • ½ lb. shrimp (peeled and de-veined)
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce (cooking wine)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 2 cups onion
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Blend 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, soy sauce and cornstarch with shrimp to prevent them from sticking together during frying. In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Briefly stir-fry broccoli, onion, mushrooms and water. Remove and put in bowl and keep warm. Add an additional 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to wok. Add shrimp and stir-fry to desired tenderness. In small mixing bowl, combine water, curry powder, salt, sugar, and cornstarch. Add this mixture to the wok along with vegetables and blend well until heated thoroughly.
