  • 9 pak choi
  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed and finely chopped
  • 1 mild green chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce (optional)


  1. Cut a thick slice from the pak choi root to separate the leaves. Rinse and drain.

  2. Heat the groundnut oil in a large wok over a medium heat and add 1 tbsp sesame oil, the garlic, chilli, fish sauce (if using) and pak choi. Toss until coated and clamp a pan lid over them. Reduce the heat and cook for 3-6 minutes, tossing occasionally, just until the leaves have wilted (the stalks should be tender-crisp).

  3. Add the rest of the sesame oil and salt. Toss the leaves and serve immediately.
