Thai Curry Noodles

Thai Curry Noodles
Went out to lunch with a colleague few days ago to a restaurant called California Pizza Kitchen aka CPK, this is one of my favorite pizza place to go. We regularly order split pea soup and Greek pizza, a thin crust pizza with feta and other Greek vegetables, but this time for a change ordered Thai Curry Linguine, it was wonderful. Tried to replicate the same at home and boy it was wonderful and tasted just like the one at CPK.

Ingredients for Basic Thai curry sauce
2 big tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp red chili paste
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lime juice
And salt according to taste

Mix all the above into a fine paste

Vegetable for stir fry
½ cup onions slit vertically into thin slices
½ cup carrots julienne
½ cup soy beans
½ cup broccoli flowers
½ snow peas
1 tbsp ginger julienne into thin slices
1 tbsp garlic
1 tbsp green chilies
1/ can of coconut milk
Salt according to taste
½ tbsp sesame oil or any other regular oil

1 cup of Linguini/angel hair paste cooked according to package instructions and drained

1.In a wok add ½ tbsp sesame oil, add ginger, garlic and chilies for few seconds add onions, carrots and the rest of the vegetables add a pinch of salt and fry till the vegetables a little cooked but still crunchy
2. Now add Thai curry sauce to the vegetable mix well and then add coconut milk
3. Mix well and bring it to a boil
4. Add boiled and drained linguini to the above and stir well
5. Squeeze juice of half a lemon and remove from heat

Serve hot with a glass of cold ice tea and enjoy the warm Thai curry noodles on a chili evening.
