Veggies:
4 tbsp oil
1 tbsp. garlic, crushed and chopped (I used about 4 big cloves)

1/3 cup dry Thai chilli deep fried
1/2 cup raw unsalted cashew nuts
1/3 cup fresh long red chilli, thinly julienned
1/2 cup capsicum cut in thin
strips

1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce

Add carrots and cook for 3 to 4 min then add in the capsicum and red chillies. At this stage, you can add in a few sprinkles of water if your wok is getting dry, but don’t add too much water.
Grab your seasoning sauce mixture, and add it to the wok. Keep stirring and you’ll see that the sauce quickly begins to thicken. Once the sauce is thick, add in the chicken, cashew nuts, and dried chillies, and gently stir,
You don’t need to stir for very long, just a couple minutes max.

The final step is to add the green onions and give your cashew chicken a few quick stirs, and then turn off the heat.
The green onions will still cook a little from the heat of the other ingredients and you want them to remain crisp and fragrant.
