A delicious stir fry. The fennel adds a interesting twist, and really works with the ginger and coconut. Serve with rice.

This was my first time cooking with fennel, and I was afraid the licorice taste would be too strong,but it wasn't at all, it was very mild. The gingery, coconutty aroma alone is worth 5 stars! But it was very tasty. I added a small piece of leftover eggplant and low-fat coconut milk. As I couldn't get a red chili, I subbed crushed dried ones, which would have been fine except 1/3 tsp. was way too much!! HOT on the tongue! Silly me. Served over curried basmati. Good one Kitzy!
