  2. Heat the oil in a stew pot, add the blended spice paste and star anise then stir-fry them until aromatic.

  4. Add the light coconut milk simmer on medium heat, stirring frequently until the meat is almost cooked.

  3. Maybe there is a issue with the Style sheet here? I can’t read anything here without highlighting it with the mouse, because it’s all yellow. I’m using Opera if it helps.
