Our Story:
In January 2014, I started a distribution company for vegetables that are not regularly available here in Chennai. The idea was born out of my own frustration of not having access to a regular supply of salads and greens in the local markets. 


The fruits, flowers & vegetables that I offer are all farmed in India. They are

grown in professionally managed farms, owned by my family, who have been in the business for the last 30 years. Only minimum quantities of approved pesticides are used responsibly whilst growing the vegetables. In other words, we take care to make sure there are no traces of fertilizers or chemicals on the products by the time they are harvested. Wherever appropriate, the produce is washed after harvesting, before packaging and shipping. The produce is also chilled on harvesting which ensures freshness for a longer period.

The vegetables & fruits are packed in standardized  bio-packs, and you will find the size and quantity of each pack mentioned on our website. Today we also sell cut-flowers.

Kang Kong Chinese Stir Fry

Kang Kong, or Morning glory is the most popular leafy greens on hot summer days. The tender leaves have a sweet and mild taste. It can be used as a simple garlic stir fry or in stews and noodles. 

SERVES: 2

INGREDIENTS:

250g Kang Kong
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 dried chili peppers cut into small sections
2 Tbsp cooking oil
1/4 tsp Sichuan peppercorn
2 Tbsp Oyster sauce (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Discard the tough stems and keep the tender parts. Then break the Kang Kong into 10cm length sections. Wash carefully and drain.

  2. Heat oil in wok over highest fire, add dried chili pepper and heat until they turn dark red. Add garlic, fry for a short time (around 5-8 seconds). Add Kong Kong and peppercorn, quickly fry for no more than 20 seconds until all of the vegetables get seared evenly. Add salt (and oyster sauce) and mix well.

  3. Serve immediately. After around 8-10 minutes, the vegetables become dark due to oxidation process. So this should be the last to make dish if you are preparing a large meal.
