Stir Fry Chicken With CashewNuts

Chicken stir fry with cashew nuts known as Gai Pad Met Ma-Maung in Thai. Its quiet famous dish in Thai restaurants. Even can find in Chinese restaurants as well. There's slight difference with the ingredients used between both styles. I prefer spicy dish with a lot of cashews in it with crispy onions. Its very simple and wont take much time to prepare. Those love cashews should try this out.



Ingredients :

  • 200 g. cubed chicken

  • 1/2 cup roasted cashew nuts

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 dried chillies, chopped

  • 1/2  red chilli, sliced

  • ¼ cup Spring onion (cut into 1.5 inch pieces)

  • ½ cup of all purpose flour

  • 1yellow onion, cut 1/4

  • 1 tbsp tomato sauce

  • 2 tbsp. oyster sauce

  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp fish sauce

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • ½ tsp salt

Preparation Method :

  • Heat the oil and roast the 8 dry chilies  for 2 minutes until fragrant.

  • Grind 4 roasted dry chili in dry blender. Remaining 4 halve into 2. Keep aside.

  • Mix chicken cubes with all purpose flour and stir fry in the same oil until cooked well.

  • Heat the oil and add garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant for about ½ minute.

  • Add the onions. Stir fry for a minute.

  • Add cooked chicken and mix well.

  • Add roasted grinded chilies and mix well.

  • Add remaining ingredients except the spring onion in the wok and season with soy sauce, tomato sauce, oyster sauce,  sugar, fish sauce and little bit  salt with high heat.

  • Continue stir fry around 2 - 3 minutes. Use the low heat and cook for a while. Taste it.

  • Place in a dish and garnish with spring onion.

Don;t put too much salt as fish sauce itself has salt in it. Taste first before add on salt.
