Thai Style Chicken & Vegetable Noodles

Ever since I have been to Thailand, I have become a big fan of Thai foods simply because it's spicy and I love spicy food! Also because it's very varied and a whole range of different flavors are mixed together.


This recipe requires using coconut milk, and although I am not a very big fan of raw coconut but every time I make this dish, the aroma of coconut cream mixed with other ingredients make me 10 times hungrier! 


For this recipe you will require few very simple ingredients..



In a pan saute garlic in about 3-4 tbsp oil.

When garlic browns, add chicken strips, salt and pepper and let cook for about 2 minutes on high flame until water almost dries.

Add Thai Red Curry Sauce and mix well. This sauce is high in sodium content therefore avoid using a large quantity because you may end up with a very salty dish.

Once the chicken is tender add vegetables of your choice. I used carrots, capsicum, cabbage and spring onions. You can also use broccoli, cauliflower, baby corn, etc. Experiment, the world is your play ground!

Add the coconut cream and let simmer on medium flame for 2 minutes.


Now add the mushrooms and mix everything well. Allow 1 more minute on stove.


Turn off the heat and add boiled noodles. If you want to adjust seasoning according to your own taste, you can do it now.

Add spring onions, mix well and dish out. Add julienne green chilies for extra spice.

Serve hot.
