Author Notes

A simple stir fry that is popular in the west, although the original version does not include carrots, broccoli or tomato sauce! The key is the use chicken thighs, as they are robust and stays moist while being deep fried. If possible, it is best to buy raw cashew nuts and deep fry or roast them freshly, the results are well worth it. —siamesecooking
