My second favorite cuisine, places the emphasis on bold aromatic tastes. Thai cuisine is very rich and healthy. I love the perfect balance between salty, sweet, bitter and sour.
Me and thai food, love at first sight! Who doesn’t fall for these colorful flavorful dishes!
To prepare the thai stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts (for 4 peopel) we need:
- 500g chicken breast cut in medium cubes
- 2 medium carrots sliced
- 3 small onions cut in half
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup chilli oil
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 scallions
- 1/2 cup sweet soya sauce
- 2 tbsp soya sauce
- 2 tbsp water
- 100g roasted cashew nuts
- salt to taste
Heat up the oil then add onion, carrots, garlic powder and bell pepper. Stir-fry until fragrant then add cashew and chicken. Stir-fry the chicken until the surface turns opaque. Add the sweet soya sauce, soya sauce and water and simmer until the chicken is cooked. Stir-in the scallion, dish out and serve immediately with steamed rice.
You can never find two identical recipes for this dish. Everyone makes it with a little twist. You can add 1 tsp of white vinegar, or fish sauce, or brown sugar… infinite add-ons, am sure each one takes it to another different dimension!
