1. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions, drain and keep warm.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon groundnut oil in a large frying pan or wok, add the apple slices and stir fry for 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate.

4. Add the remaining oil to the pan and stir fry the chilli, stir fry vegetables and broccoli for 4 minutes.
