Curry Soup Noodles Recipe

Step 1

BRING 3 QUARTS of salted water to a boil. Add noodles; stir to separate strands. Bring water to a second boil and cook 30 seconds longer. Pour noodles into a colander. Rinse thoroughly with running cold water. Drain. Shake off excess water. Distribute among 4 small soup bowls. In a saucepan, heat the oil and add the garlic; gently saute until lightly brown. Add the Simple Red Curry Paste. Lightly saute for a minute. Increase to medium-high heat and add the thick coconut cream; stir continuously until the cream reduces and becomes oil. Add chicken; saute lightly and break up the lumps. Add medium coconut milk, chicken stock, curry powder, turmeric, fish sauce and sugar. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cabbage and cook 30 seconds longer. Just before serving add lemon juice. Pour the soup over the noodles. Top with green onions. Serve hot with a squeeze of lemon juice.
