Recipe : Pork Stir Fry with Chilli Coconut Shot (Blue Dragon)

Rushina sent me a food basket, a little while ago. Personally, I rarely pick up ready mixes other than masala powders and the occasional MTR breakfast mixes, so this was the first time that I actually looked at the Blue Dragon ready mix sauce range as they were a part of this basket.

I'd been busy the whole day and I'd left a small packet of pork out to defrost, but had no energy for a whole lot of chopping and stirring, so I dug out these sauces from my pantry cupboard and decided to try the Chilli Coconut shot mix.

From experience, I would recommend boiling the pork before stir frying it, so that it is tender.

150-200 gms boiled pork/chicken - cut in long thin strips
1 packet (140gm pouch) Blue Dragon's Chilli Coconut shot mix
200 gms chopped veggies of your choice - baby corn, capsicum, beans, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, asparagus
6-8 cloves garlic chopped fine
2-4 green chillies - slit (for extra spice - optional)
1/2 tsp oil
250 gms rice/noodles cooked (to serve on the side or mix in and fry)

Heat the oil in a wok and brown the garlic in it.
Add the meat and cook till done.
Add the vegetables one by one (in order of cooking times) and stir fry on high heat until almost cooked.
Add the green chillies if using and give a quick stir.

Add the Blue Dragon's Chilli Coconut shot mix and cook till done.
Serve hot with a side of rice or noodles.
If you prefer you can add the cooked rice/noodles to the pan and stir fry for a little longer for a one dish meal.

You can serve the Stir fry over cooked rice/noodles, or chop the meat and vegetables smaller and mix & fry the rice/noodles in the pan itself at the end, for an interesting fried rice/noodle dish.

The recipe will work just as well with chicken or even as a vegetarian dish, without any meat.

A word of warning however, the Chilli Coconut shot mix has fish sauce in it, so its not pure vegetarian.

Blue Dragon's Chilli Coconut shot mix was quite tasty but not spicy enough for our taste, so I had to add more chillies when cooking. Other than that it was a lovely balance of flavours and did not taste like it came out of a packet.
