Looking for a dish with an Asian twist to shake up your usual dinner routine?

While many of us order Asian take-out at least once a month, it’s so much more fun to try your hand at these dishes in your own kitchen.

Whether you’re after Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese, Indonesian or Malaysian for dinner, we’ve rounded up 10 of the most amazing stir-fry and curry recipes that will satisfy your need for colourful cuisine.

Our top 10 favourite Asian recipes

1. Stir-fried Asian greens with tofu

Fragrant garlic and ginger infuse these fresh Asian greens – which should be just tender when cooked – and the tofu, and peanuts add crunch.

2. Green pork curry

With authentic fish sauce, this winner can be on the table in less than 20 minutes. Great for those nights when you’re almost considering ordering takeout, but ‘healthy you’ knows better.

3. Chilli chicken stir-fry

Put some fiery flavour into your dinner-time with this easy stir-fry, which takes less time to make than it does to order take out.

4. Coconut Prawns with Two Dipping Sauces

Give these beautiful king prawns a touch of the Caribbean – rolled in flaky coconut then fried to crispy perfection – before serving with either a zesty lemon, or spicy fish and lime sauce.

5. Green Papaya Salad

Bold Thai flavours of prawns, fish sauce, chilli and garlic combine to make this easy spicy salad.

6. Steamed Asian vegies

Low in fat and calories but big on flavours of chilli, ginger and soy.

7. Creamy coconut pork curry

Prepare your tastebuds for a flavour extravaganza with cumin, coriander, cinnamon, chilli and ginger combining to ensure every mouthful is better than the last.

8. Chilli tofu stir-fry

No need to order takeaway when you can whip this nutritious meal, full of authentic spices that have you reaching for the chopsticks before it’s even hit the plate.

9. Lemon grass and beef rice paper rolls

Best thing about these rolls (other than the fact they’re moorish) is the fact you can make them ahead of time. Just place them seam-side down on a tray lined with plastic wrap, cover with damp paper towel and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.

10. Asian chicken broth

The perfect broth to have with dumplings and the ideal meal for these cooler winter months.
