Mix vegetables , spinach and bok choy in hunan style sauce

We love the authentic style chinese sauces at some special restaurants in the city. One such gravy that we love is the mix veggies in hunan style sauce. Since it is impractical to visit the restaurant with a demanding kid who is yet o develop taste his taste for strong pungent flavors, I often make it at home, adjusting to his taste and then adding more flavors for our needs. 
One surprise combination was teaming this gravy with dosa which was invented by my little one. I often make some rice for him but since this time I made noodles for us, so did some dosas for him. I was quite surprised by the combination though, it tasted fabulous.
Give it a try yourself.
For now giving you the recipe for this gravy…

 The gravy is dominated with the capsicum’s flavor and is usually spicy. Since indian capsicums are not very hot, I have added chopped green chillies to get the punch.

1 spring onion finely sliced, greens to be chopped roughly
1 capsicum finely chopped
1 bunch of bok choy / spinach – roughly chopped

1 tspn vinegar (rice or dark vinegar)
2 green chillies finely chopped
1 tspn ginger finely chopped
1 tspn garlic finely chopped
2 tspn corn flour mixed in water
salt and pepper to taste
oil to cook
Method

2) Add the chopped ginger ,garlic , green chillies.Saute
3) Add the other chopped vegetables. Saute on high flame for 2-3 min
4) Add the spring onions, capsicum. Saute them till they are soft on high flame
5) Add the chopped spinach and bok choy
6) Add 4 cups of water along with corn starch slurry
7) Add the soy sauce, vinegar and stir it
8) Add salt and pepper to taste.
