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.
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.

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