Vegetarian Fried Chinese Chives Flowers (Ku Chai Hua) with Ginger Recipe

It has been a long time since I last cooked this dish. I like to cook Chinese chives flowers with a little starchy gravy just like the way I fry kailan or broccoli.
Here is my stir fry Chinese Chives Flowers recipe.

Chinese Chives Flower, 1 bunch, cut into 1” length
Ginger, 5 slices
Carrot, 1 pc, cut into bite sizes
Light soya sauce
Garlic, 3 pcs, chopped finely
Chinese cooking wine (shao shing chiew, optional), 1 teaspoon
Vegetarian oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon
Corn flour and water mixture
Salt to taste

Heat up wok and put in 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. Put in the garlic and sauté it until fragrant. Throw in the ginger and carrot. Add Chinese chives flowers and light soya sauce. Stir fry for a short while and add in the Chinese cooking wine. Add vegetarian oyster sauce and salt to taste. Pour a little corn flour and water mixture to make to thicken the gravy. Serve with steamed rice.
