Thai Chicken Basil Stir Fry

If you are a fan of red thai curry, then this stir fry loaded with veggies is sure to be a winner in your home! The sauce of this stir fry is a concentrated version of a red curry with flavors of coconut cream shining through. You can add ay combination of veggies you like, though I do think these ones go really well together. This is a one pan (wok) meal! There is no separate frying or boiling required, and it literally comes together as a complete meal in one pan. I highly recommend you try this one out, because it is a favorite of mine!
If you like you can pair this with noodles or white jasmine rice, but we like to eat it as it is.
