  2. Peanut Sauce: Add all ingredients in a small pan on low heat until the mixture begins to bubble; add more water if needed. Once done, cover and set aside

  3. Coconut Curry: Place a pan over medium heat,  add olive oil, sesame oil and red chili pepper flakes. Add chopped onion, garlic and ginger and cook just until onion is translucent. Add Thai Seven Spices and water and stir well. Once the mixture boils, add coconut milk, julienned carrots, zucchini, and peas. Bring back to boil and let the sauce simmer for 20 minutes on low-heat

  4. Assemble plates: Pour the coconut curry into 4 plates. With the help of an ice-cream scoop or a small cup, create a rice ball in the centre of each plate. Place the chicken and shrimp around the rice. Drizzle peanut sauce over the curry and rice. Garnish with peanuts, green onions and coconut flakes
