One-Pot Coconut Curry Noodles

This rich and creamy coconut curry noodles recipe is inspired by a Thai noodle curry dish called Khao Soi. It is a coconut milk-based curry which can be both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Here I have shared a vegetarian noodle bowl recipe. A super simple and quick one-pot meal, making it easy to whip up for your entire family.

Cooking Suggestions:

  • Vegetables – So here I have used carrots and french beans. But you can add whatever vegetable you have in your refrigerator. Like for example, you can use bell peppers, cabbage, zucchini, mushrooms, green peas etc.
  • Protein – If you wish to increase the protein content of this dish, then all the vegetarians can add pan-fried paneer or tofu. And the non-vegetarians can add shrimp, chicken or any other meat of your choice. Just make sure you add it towards the end, that is, after adding the noodles into the curry. Adjust the cooking time according to the additional ingredient you are using. As shrimp will cook much faster than chicken. So just be careful, you don’t want to overcook anything.
  • Big Pot – To make this one-pot curry always use a big pot which can easily cook the curry along with the noodles. If you don’t have a large pot, then use two medium pots/pans. Cook the coconut curry in one and the noodles in another.
  • Noodles – For this recipe, you can use any noodles of your choice. Like wheat noodles, rice noodles, egg noodles or even spaghetti. They all will work just fine.
  • Serve Hot – Garnish it with green chillies and always serve hot.

Cooking Directions:

Add coconut milk powder in a bowl.

Pour 1 cup warm water and whisk until well combined. Make sure there are no lumps in the mixture. You can also substitute it with 1 cup of fresh coconut milk. I just used whatever I had in my pantry.

Heat a pot over medium flame. Pour oil and allow it to heat up. Then add bay leaves, cinnamon stick and green cardamoms. Cook until they become fragrant. It may take approximately 1-2 minutes.

Add the chopped onions. Cook them until they become soft and slightly translucent.

Add the chopped green chillies, garlic and ginger. Saute until the raw smell disappears.

After that pour the chopped carrots and french beans. Cook for a minute or two.

Pour coriander powder, turmeric powder, black pepper powder, sugar and salt. Give everything a good mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

Then pour 8 cups of water into the pot, increase the flame to high and bring it to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, add the noodles.

Reduce the flame to low and cover it with a lid. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the noodles are fully cooked.

Uncover the pot and pour coconut milk into the curry. Give it a stir and bring it to a boil.
