How to cook Khao Soi (Northern Thai Curry Noodles)

To make Khao Soi, you will need the following ingredients:

For the curry paste:

  • 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds
  • 4 dried chili peppers
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped lemongrass
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

For the curry:

  • 1 pound of chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons of fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 package of fresh egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro, for garnish
  • 1/2 cup of crispy fried noodles, for garnish
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for serving

To make the Khao Soi, follow these steps:

  1. To make the curry paste, toast the cumin seeds and coriander seeds in a dry pan over medium heat until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Grind the toasted seeds in a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle.
  2. Soak the dried chili peppers in hot water for 10 minutes, then drain and remove the stems and seeds.
  3. In a blender or food processor, combine the ground cumin and coriander seeds, soaked chili peppers, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, turmeric, and salt. Blend the mixture into a smooth paste.
  4. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the curry paste and fry it for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  5. Add the chicken to the pot and cook it until it is browned on all sides.
  6. Add the coconut milk, chicken broth, fish sauce, and sugar to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
  7. While the curry is simmering, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions.
  8. To serve the Khao Soi, divide the cooked noodles between serving bowls. Ladle the curry over the noodles, then garnish with cilantro, crispy fried noodles, and a lime wedge. Enjoy!
