4 potatoes peeled and cut into smaller pieces
1 carrot peeled and cut into smaller pieces
1 1/2 tablespoon of soya bean paste or "Tau cho"

One clove of garlic peeled and minced
A dash of Chinese wine

1) Heat oil in pot and add garlic to sauteed.
2) Add chicken to pot and stir fry in high heat until browned. Add Chinese wine and continue to saute the chicken for about 1 minute.
