Easy peasy stir fry recipe. Serve with couscous or rice. NOTE: You CAN add extra "heat" to this recipe (extra cayenne pepper or curry paste) to suit your own tastes. I have deliberately kept the flavors mild in this recipe in order to not overshadow the taste of the fresh peppers and cashews. I love spicy hot food, but sometimes a mild take on things is a nice change from my routine. You be the judge!

This looked and smelled delicious, but it was very bland, as others have commented. It tasted like it was missing something, but I don't know what. I served it over basmati rice. Don't think I'll be making this again, unfortunately.
I really loved this curry/stir-fry. I left the recipe as is and I think it was quite nice. I toasted my cashews in the oven before adding and also added some simple pan fried tofu dusted with a sprinking of salt on the side and served over rice. It was the perfect meal. I will be making this again and again. Thanks for this simple yet elegant meal. I look forward to trying more of your recipes!
We enjoyed this very much, fresh and full of flavour, we dont tend to use salt or flavour enhancers, so found the recipe very good as is. It was very quickly prepared, and felt like a very exotic dish for a simple mid-week supper! Thank you Shannon, for another excellent recipe!
