Trim and halve the brussels sprouts. Place in a saucepan, cover with boiling water and cook for three minutes. Drain well. Grate the pieces of coconut, chopping the pieces that become a little too small to grate. Keep the chopped coconut separate.
Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok and fry the fennel and peppers for five minutes, stirring frequently. Add the sprouts and fry for three minutes.

Stir in the coconut milk, bouillon powder and chilli flakes and simmer gently for a further 3-5 minutes until hot and bubbling.
