Rice Noodle with seafood Curry Sauce
Rice Noodle with seafood Curry Sauce or "Khao Soi Talay" in Thai. Today I am going to take you to try noodle recipe from North of Thailand, Chiang Mai. I heard somebody said, whenever you go to Chiang Mai and you don't try this food. It means you aren't really get in Chiang Mai. The original recipe is from North of Thailand. But you can find to eat anywhere in Bangkok. We take from Myanmar to put the curry powder into the red curry paste. The combination between curry powder, red curry paste and ginger with coconut milk. It is just spectacular. Here I made with seafood and I used rice noodle instead of egg noodle. And I put some green bean and cabbage also. I used all vegetable that I have in my refrigerator. So I don't follow all ingredients from the original recipe. I made my own version of Khao Soi. I don't put crispy fried noodles and pickled mustard green that I am supposed to have. But but the results are still tasty. We should eat all fresh vegetable I have here because we are not going to be home for a week. We will be leaving home to go to Florida, Naples. Of course, I will miss my kitchen. In the mean time, I am excited to go to new place and try new restaurant in Florida and I can't wait to get back to my kitchen and try new recipe.
