Make Stir-Fry and sauce: Add peanut oil to the wok and heat. Add garlic, ginger, and red chillies to the wok. Stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add green pepper, red pepper, and peanuts to it and sauté for a minute. Add soy sauce and mix well. Mix vegetable broth and cornstarch in a separate bowl and add to the wok.
