DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare all ingredients in advance.
  • Place wok or pan over a moderate heat and add 2 tablespoons oil.
  • Add garlic and stir fry gently until it is just starting to colour lightly.

  • Remove garlic and shallots to another dish and set aside until needed.
  • Add a little more oil to the pan and increase heat.

  • Add the chillies and stir fry for a minute or two.
  • Now add the oyster sauce, fish sauce and palm sugar.

  • Before serving, sprinkle lightly with white pepper.
