A recipe packed with vegetables, protein and spices : my kinda thing. It is pretty much healthy. But if you don’t like fiery dish, then skip the recipe because spicy it is. I found the recipe here and adapted it a bit.
The recipe is super simple, you need a bit of exotic ingredients but they’re not difficult to find if you have an asian store close to home.
You can easily switch the vegetables for eggplants, carrots or whatever please your tastebuds.
