Stir-Fried Vegetables with Quail Eggs & Cashew Nuts

How does food usually entice you? Is it through the aroma, taste or overall appearance? The popular idiomatic expression explain it all right, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

What's more, the interplay of the different textures from the medium-softness of the eggs to the crispy-crunch of cashew nuts is another enjoyable tang. Add to that, since it's a vegetable dish, it's healthy too. Thus far, don't you think this is a dish that's a sure bliss to the palate?
