Ingredients

4 garlic cloves, peeled 

2 birds’ eye chillies 

2 large mild red chillies, roughly chopped 

4 tbsp oyster sauce 

2 tbsp fish sauce 

1 tsp sugar 

2 tbsp vegetable oil 

500g (1 lb) mince meat (e.g. beef, pork, chicken or turkey mince)

1 cup basil leaves (e.g. Italian basil or Thai basil or a mix of both)

Steps

Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic and chillies to a rough paste. 

To make the stir-fry sauce, mix together the oyster sauce, fish sauce and sugar. 

Heat the oil in wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the paste and cook for half a minute. Then add the mince meat and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or until just cooked. Add the zucchini and the stir-fry sauce. Stir-fry for another 1-2 minutes. Toss through the basil. Remove from heat and serve with the rice.
