Stir fry's are done on high flame so keep an eye on your veggies and don't overcook or burn them . generally corn flour is used to thicken the sauce but I have used rice flour I have used dates instead of sugar or honey. You can use as many veggies of your choice for stir fry . The above recipe is very flavorful and close to authentic one. I love to use healthy ingredients as much as possible because there is no right or wrong about cooking. Teriyaki sauce can be prepared before hand and stored in the fridge up to a week. If you are making sauce at the time of making stir fry then don't cook it separately . Just whisk the entire sauce mixture in a bowl and add it after you saute the veggies.
