Story Behind this Recipe
Before, when the prices of vegetable were expensive, I used inexpensive pea sprouts to make this easy and delicious stir-fry. The kids like it, so it's a staple at our house.
If you like the taste of pea sprouts, just use a little seasonings. However, if you dislike the taste, use a lot. Instead of chikuwa, try satsuma age (deep fried fishcake) or abura-age (deep fried tofu), sausages, or fish sausages.
