Pad Med Ma Muang (Cashew Nut Curry)

The Cashew Nut Curry (ผัดเม็ดมะม่วง) or Pad Med Ma muang is a real favorite for Thai’s and farang alike. This is not a traditional Thai dish, as it is actually from the Sichuan Chinese dish “Kung Pao Chicken” just in the Thai version the peanuts are changed for Cashew nuts.

The dish is most often cooked with chicken for meat eaters but this is a vegan version which retains the delicious flavours and nutrition whilst trying to keep the dish as ital as possible.
