  • 1 kg chicken thighs (shredded) - أوراك الدجاج
  • 4 carrots (shredded lengthwise) - جزر
  • 1 red pepper (thinly cut) - فلفل أحمر
  • 1 yellow pepper (thinly cut) - فلفل أصفر
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger (grated) - جنزبيل
  • 3 tablespoon light soy sauce - صوص الصويا الخفيف
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger powder - بودرة جنزبيل
  • 6 spring onion (stems) - بصلة خضراء
  • 2 teaspoon red curry paste (you may also use green curry paste) - صلصة الكارى الحمراء
  • 1 can coconut milk (a full can or 1 ¾ cups) - لبن جوز الهند
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
  • coriander (fresh, for garnish - optional) - كزبرة

Step by step

  1. In a large wok or pan, stir-fry all the veggies (except the spring onion) in 2 tbsps. olive oil until softened.
  2. Add the spring onions and a 1 tbsp. soy sauce for another 3 minutes. Once all is cooked, remove from heat, transfer to a dish, and set aside.
  3. In the same wok, add 1 tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tbsp. fresh ginger, and stir in the chicken. Stir fry the chicken on high heat, after you add black pepper, extra ginger powder and the rest of the soy sauce. Cook the chicken until golden and cooked through.
  4. Add the chicken to the stir-fried veggies, cover, and set aside.
  5. In the same wok, mix the coconut milk with 2 teaspoon red curry paste (for medium spicy) until nicely dissolved.
  6. Return the chicken and veggies to the wok, season with salt and pepper, and let it simmer for a few minutes with the curry coconut milk sauce. Serve it best with yellow turmeric rice garnished with thinly sliced spring onions and fresh coriander.
