Bangkok Coconut Curry Noodle Bowls

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Coconut Curry

Straight from Pinch of Yum | Serves: 4 | Time: ~40 min


For the coconut #curry sauce

1 tbsp oil

2 shallots

1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced

2 tbsp red curry paste

1 14-oz can regular #CoconutMilk

1/2 cup veggie broth

3 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp #Asian chili paste (I used sriracha)

2 tbsp fish sauce (vegan option)

2 tbsp soy sauce (I used coconut aminos)

For the bowls

4 ounces rice noodles

1 tbsp oil

half an onion, chopped

1 cup chopped broccoli florets

1 cup shredded #carrots

1 cup chopped asparagus (I skipped this, swapped in #mushrooms)

1 cup shredded purple #cabbage

sesame seeds for topping

limes for serving

a handful of fresh basil for serving



Soak the noodles in a bowl of cold water. Start this right away – they need at least 20 minutes or so of soaking. When they’re soft, drain and rinse.


Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the shallots and ginger; stir fry for 3-5 minutes. Add the curry paste; stir fry for 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, sugar, chili paste, fish sauce, and soy sauce. Simmer for 15 minutes or so while you prep the rest of the ingredients – it should thicken slightly. If you’re adding the broth to make the sauce go farther, you might need a little extra simmer time for the sauce to thicken.

Vegetables and Assembly

In a large skillet (I used a wok), heat the oil over high heat. Add the onion, carrots, broccoli, and asparagus (I used mushrooms). Stir fry for about 5 minutes until the broccoli and asparagus are bright green. Add the noodles and toss around in the pan with the vegetables. Add the sauce and toss together until just combined (if you cook it too long at this point, the noodles might get too sticky). Serve topped with the purple cabbage and sesame seeds and a squeeze of lime or basil leaves if you want.
