I make this dish every once in a few weeks. I love the ease of making it, the kids love it, it’s packed with flavor. I also love making this for larger groups of people! Posting the recipe in the hopes it works for you too!
Everything in this recipe is andaza (to your liking)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
1 packet of noodles
Small chopped onion
2 diced chicken breasts
5 garlic cloves
1 Green Chili
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1 Chicken Knor Cube
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 can of Coconut Milk
Boil one packet of noodles according to the instructions on the packet. Save 1 cup of the pasta water you boiled the pasta in.
Sauté a small chopped up onion in some butter and olive oil. When soft, add 2 chicken breasts (diced). When the water dries, you can season the chicken with some garlic salt and pepper. Let it slightly change colour and remove from heat. You want a little liquid left, not a lot.
In the same pan add a table spoon of olive oil, and sauté 5-5 cloves of chopped up garlic. Add 1 1/2 tsp of green curry paste(I use Mae ploy). More if you s like a spicy kick. Blitz a big bunch of dhania (cilantro) and 1 green chili (eliminate if your kids don’t like it) in a food processor with a some water.... you want it to be a paste and add it to the pan. Add 1/2 tsp of turmeric, 1 chicken knor cube, pepper, 1/2 tsp of ground cumin juice of a lemon and bhunofy for a 1-2 minutes. Add the chicken back in with about 1 can of coconut milk or if you want to be naughty then coconut cream.
Now add the noodles. And about 1/2 a cup of the pasta water. Mix it all together till the sauce coats the noodles.
Put in a bowl, add crispy toppings. My favourite are of course chili chips and fried garlic.
