[Does stir-fry celery need water?]
Whether simmering water is needed or not when frying celery is mainly divided into two cases. One is if there is an elderly person, or the tooth mouth is not good, or the celery is relatively old, you can simmer water before frying celery.
For the tender celery, you can fry it without simmering water. The tender celery will be cooked quickly after being heated, so it tastes refreshing and crunchy, and the taste is very good.
In fact, both of these statements have their reasons, depending on personal tastes and needs.
I recommend sautéing celery with a little water, but a little simmering is fine.
Why do you stir-fry the celery first?
The main purpose is to make the celery basically stale after passing through the water.
It’s easy to cook if you re-fry it.
Then there is the pesticide removal.
Others are to maintain the color of vegetables, or to remove odors, astringency, and oxalic acid. Some vegetables must be simmered before cooking.
However, from a nutritional point of view, simmering water can increase the loss of additional nutrients. Pakchoi is blanched in water at 100 ° C for two minutes, and the vitamin C loss rate is as high as 65%. When boiled for more than 10 minutes, vitamin C is almost lost.
Therefore, you should use appropriate methods to reduce the loss of nutrients as much as possible.
There are actually some ways to reduce the loss of vitamins in vegetables, for example: 1. Using a large amount of boiling water and short-time water treatment can reduce the heat loss of nutrients.
Because of the presence of oxidase in vegetable cell tissue, it can accelerate the oxidation of vitamin C, especially at 60 ° C?
At 80 ° C, the activity is highest.
In boiling water, the oxidase loses its activity to the thermal constant, and at the same time, the boiling water has almost no oxygen, thereby reducing the loss of vitamin C caused by thermal oxidation.
2. Add 1% common salt to the simmered water, so that the vegetables are in the physiological common salt solution, and the speed at which the soluble nutrients in the vegetables can diffuse into the water is slowed down.
Preparation of fried celery squid ingredients: squid, celery, red pepper, oil, salt, soy sauce, pepper, garlic, ginger.
1. Remove the celery roots, remove some celery leaves, wash them, cut them into sections, scoop the celery stalks in boiling water, and remove the drained water.
2, squid go to the head to clean the internal organs, cut into small pieces.
Stir the cut squid into water, add soy sauce, stir with a small amount of salt, and marinate for 10 minutes.
3. Cut red pepper and ginger into pieces, and smash garlic.
4, prepare the wok, put the oil in the hot pot, and smash the garlic, the ginger and the red pepper.
Then pour the marinated squid into the pan and stir fry quickly.
5. Pour in the celery stalks and stir-fry the squid in the high heat quickly.
Add the celery leaves and stir-fry, then add salt and a small amount of soy sauce.
Turn off the heat and cook.
