Stir-frying is different from normal frying as it tends to be done over a hotter heat and as the name implies, it is continually stirred. It also tends to be done in a wok.
Associated with Asian cuisine and in particular where stir-frying originated, China, there is a wide range of dishes that can be cooked with this method. Only taking the name ‘stir-fry’ in the 1900s, the Chinese name for this style of cooking is chao.
It frequently is also a one-pot meal option, however many people choose to serve a stir-fry with rice or noodles, meaning another pot is required.
