Cashew Chicken Stir Fry is a dish of Thai cuisine. In Asia, it is customary to cook “fry quickly on high heat” and this method is called Stir-Fry. Therefore, everything needs to be done quickly, so that the vegetables remain steamed and fresh at the same time, and the meat is completely ready. If you have a wok-pan, then cook in it, or you can cook in a regular pan. The sauce adds spice to this dish. The sauce is a mix of three sauces: oyster, soy and fish, and cane sugar, and a little wine.
