Brown your mushrooms in a little coconut oil in a Wok. Add the green and red pepper and fry until almost soft and transfer to a large bowl.

Fry the carrots, green beans and cabbage in a little coconut oil until almost done and transfer it into the same bowl as your mushrooms and peppers.

Season your chicken pieces with salt and pepper and fry it in coconut oil until completely done, add the curry paste or Thai 7 spice to the chicken and fry for another minute. You can add more paste or spice to increase the heat but taste it first before you add more!

Add your coconut milk to the chicken and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add your cooked veggies to the chicken and just heat it up while you mixed it through well with the chicken and sauce. Season with salt to taste.

Garnish with fresh Coriander or Vietnamese coriander before serving.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
