  5. Add in the soy sauce and brown sugar and simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Add in the green beans, baby corn, zucchini and water chestnuts.
  7. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes until the zucchini has softened.

  9. Take off the heat and serve with rice and garnish with Thai basil leaves, red chilli and coriander leaves. Enjoy!


• This recipe uses soy sauce instead of fish sauce to give it that salty deliciousness.

• Increase the amount of green chilli for more heat if desired.

• Prepare kaffir lime leaves by pulling the leafy part away from the stem and discarding the stem.
