2 cloves of garlic

Chop onion and garlic, and fry it in a small pan. Add 2 spoons of red curry paste, 1 can of coconut milk and a little water. Then add 2 spoons of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Add basil and as much lime juice as you find suitable.
1. Get your woking pan ready, turn it on to full heat and add your cooking oil.
2. Wok one portion at a time, to keep the vegetables crispy.
3. Cook the vegetables for one minute before adding 2-3 tablespoons of the red curry sauce.
