  • Put the oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the garlic, chilli, yellow pepper and the scallions, and cook for 2.5 minutes, stirring regularly. 
  • Now add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil, stirring regularly, then remove from the heat. 
  • Serve with some chopped fresh coriander/chives and some sliced avocado and/or natural plain yoghurt, topping with some chilli flakes.
