2 tbsp ground nut oil
500g turkey fillets, cut into cunks
3 tbso fnely sliced shallots
3 tbsp chopped garlic
3 fresh red chillies, finely sliced – if you don’t like it spicy, make sure you do de-seed them
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
a large handful of fresh basil
Heat your wok or big frying pan until it is very hot, add one tablespoon of the oil and add the turkey chunks once the oil is piping hot. Stir-fry over a very high heat for about 8 minutes until golden brown. Transfer the turkey to a colander or sieve and let it drain.
Reheat your wok and add remaining oil before you add the shallots and garlic. Stir-fry for 3 minutes until golden brown.
Return the turkey to the wok and add the chillies, dark soy and fish sauce and sugar. Stir-fry over a very high heat for another 8 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through. Stir in the basil and serve with some boiled rice.
