- Meanwhile, in a small jug or bowl place peanut butter, curry powder, coconut milk and soy sauce and mix well with a fork. Set aside.
- In a pan or wok heat 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil over a medium-high heat. Add spring onions and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add carrots and courgette and cook for 2 minutes. Add slaw and stir-fry briefly to combine. Remove from pan and set aside.
