Today, after lunch, my Mum visited and my two year old told her “Had some yummy food”. George really seems to love this meal and it is certainly a hit with his Dad too. I love this stir fry, not only because it so tasty, but it is so quick! If I concentrate and put aside distractions (hard to do with a little boy in the house) then I can get this meal done in 10 minutes. With a whole pack of stir fry vegetables in this dish it is a good recipe to get kids eating vegetables that they usually refuse. I really recommend this stir fry it is the perfect way to get a delicious meal on the table in no time at all and is a must on your meal plan.
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 250g pre-cooked prawns (I use frozen prawns and defrost them in my fridge)
- approx 250g noodles
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp tamarind paste
- Packet of fresh ready to use stir fry vegetables (approx 400g)
- Handful fresh coriander.
- Tip the ground spice and soy sauce over the prawns and mix well.
- Heat noodles in boiling water according to packet instructions.
- Pour oil into a large wok and put on a high heat, when oil is really hot add prawns, scraping out all the of spices into the wok.
- Move prawns quickly around wok for only a few minutes before adding prepared vegetables. Stir for a minute or two, keeping the heat high.
- Mix in honey and tamarind paste, keep stirring. This should take approx 4-5 minutes.
- Drain noodles, transfer to the wok and use chop sticks to mix everything together.
- Serve with some fresh coriander.
Tip: If you like spicy food try adding a large helping of white pepper to this dish. White pepper gives heat, but provides a different flavour to chilli.
