Khao Soi aka curry noodle soup!

Trang Nguyen


I cheated a little with this recipe! Instead of doing my own red chili paste I bought it premade! Cuts down on my cooking time since I have a full time job!




3 tablespoon red curry paste
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cans coconut cream
2 cans chicken stock
2 chicken breast sliced
Optional: 8-12 large tiger prawns (add 3 minutes before you serve)
2 minced garlic cloves
3 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon of palm sugar
2 Thai chili for the spicy kick!
1 teaspoon of hot chili oil

In a stock pot add all the oils and garlic and sautee until golden and add curry paste and turmeric and continue to simmer and put in 1/2 your coconut milk. The add chicken and cook. Then add rest of count milk, chicken stock, fish sauce, 1 tablespoon of palm sugar or 1 piece of Palm sugar. Continue to cook until your chicken is all the way cooked. This is when you taste and add your salt, sugar and pepper to your liking. Set aside until you're done prepping noodles and toppings.

1 pack of Chinese egg noodles - in a pot I boil water a portion at a time. Each package has 4 bunches of noodles for 4 servings. I drop noodles in boiling water and let it cook for a few minutes until cooked. Stir it so it doesn't stick. Put in a bowl after you drain the water.

Fried egg noodles: in a small pan add some oil and bring to a simmer. I use some of the uncooked egg noodles and I cut them up in 2 inch pieces. Then deep fry them but make sure your oil is hot! Be careful not to covercrowd the pot do I only put in a little at a time so it will be crispy. This gives your dish the crunch texture in the soup.


lime wedges
4 Shallots chopped
Sliced pickled Chinese mustard greens (premade packaging)

Chopped Green onions
Chopped red Thai chili
And chili oil (you can make your own. 3 tablespoon vegetable oil and 2 table spoon or chili flakes and bring to simmer).


If you like shrimp, you can add to the boiling pot 3 minutes before you serve. Once shrimps are cooked, ladle the soup on top of the noodles. And let everyone too their soup of the topping of their choice. I love lots of lime juice! Enjoy!
