Stir Fried Broccolini with Cashew Nut Red Curry

Cook Time 30 minutes

Servings 4


2 bunches broccolini, peeled and cut in half
100 ml peanut oil
½ cup chopped roasted cashew nuts
1 handful thai basil, picked
2 long red chillies, seeds removed & finely julienned
2 kaffir lime leaves, finely julienned

Curry sauce
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp red curry paste
2 kaffir lime leaves
50 gm chopped palm sugar
400 ml coconut milk
200 ml water
½ cup ground roasted cashew nuts
50 ml fish sauce
50 ml lime juice


For the sauce, heat a small saucepan over a medium heat and add the oil.  Once hot, add the kaffir lime leaves and curry paste.  Cook for 3-4 minutes or until it becomes fragrant.  Add the palm sugar and cook for another 5 minutes.  

Add the coconut milk and water, then stir well to combine.  Simmer for 20 minutes or until the raw taste has gone. Remove from heat and add the ground cashews, fish sauce and lime juice.  Cool and reserve.

To serve, heat a wok and add the peanut oil.  Add the broccolini and  cook until just tender. Add enough of the sauce to coat the broccolini nicely. Add the thai basil and chilli and mix through. Spoon onto a plate and top with the chopped cashews and julienned lime leaf. Serve with jasmine rice.
