There are only a few ready sauce I will buy. Not through any snobbery but because I wasn’t brought up eating them. The peanut satay sauce from Woolworth/Countdown Signature range is so good, sorry if you aren’t in NZ or Australia. This dish work equally well with noodles in their soft form and any old veg you have knocking around. I often use the frozen stir fry vegetables. This recipe is for 4 people, I am sure you can figure out how to up or downsize it.
I garnish the grown ups portion with sliced chilli and other yum bits. We have chillies in the freezer and just one of these little fellows is enough. Our pack is from the freezer section of Moore Wilson.
