Vegan Cambodian Wedding Day Dip Recipe
250g Oyster mushrooms, finely chopped.
50g Kroeung (Cambodian yellow curry paste, do not be tempted to use Indian curry powder. you need to use a proper yellow curry paste. Luckily we wrote another recipe for you here.)
2 small bird eye chillies with seeds removed, finely chopped.
2 dessert spoons olive oil.
1 tsp palm sugar (use brown sugar as an alternative).
1 can (375ml) of good quality pure coconut milk (avoid brands with stabilisers and additives).
25g onion, finely chopped.
50g of plain peanuts (no skin).
Start by toasting your peanuts in a dry frying pan over a low to medium heat. Remove from the pan and crush roughly in a pestle and mortar. Put to one side.
Put your oil in the frying pan and heat to a medium high heat.
Fry the onion and oyster mushrooms for about 2 minutes and then add the chillies, palm sugar and yellow curry paste. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 3 or 4 minutes.
Add coconut milk and toasted peanuts. Stir well and simmer for 1-2 minutes to thicken.
Season with salt and black pepper.
Transfer to blender and blend until you have a rustic, hummus like consistency.
Serve it warm with raw vegetables, slices of fresh baguette and some chopped red chillies.
