"Khao Soy" (Chiang Mai
This is the fettuccini Alfredo of Thailand!
It consists of a creamy curry sauce that is served over egg noodles. This
particular dish is named after the Northern Thai city from which it was
created: Chiang Mai.
4 ounces fresh egg noodle
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1/2 cup of coconut milk
4 ounces of ground pork
1 cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 pinch of turmeric powder
2 tablespoons of fish sauce
1 teaspoon lime juice
The egg noodles should be fresh. If you cannot find fresh egg noodles,
you may substitute almost any other noodle you desire. However if you
intend to use dried noodles, remember to soak them first for 20 minutes.
Here is the two step plan. You should be doing these simultaneously.
Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil.
Cook the noodles for roughly 20 seconds.
Strain the noodles, and put them on your plate
In a medium sized saucepan, heat the coconut milk on low heat, and slowly
stir in the curry paste. When it begins to simmer, add in the remaining
items, except for the pork. Wait about 1 minute, then add in the pork,
and cook until the pork is done (not pink in the middle)
Pour the sauce over the noodles, and voila!
