Cambodian Curry Noodle

For Cambodian Curry Noodle you can make any kind of curry to go along with the rice noodle, but for Khmer curry noodle is a bit different, we use fresh curry paste mix with some red or yellow curry paste or only fresh curry paste. I often mix with Thai red curry paste.

To make chicken curry

1 can of coconut milk or cream
1/4 cup of homemade curry paste
3 tablespoon of red curry paste
5 star aniseeds
Half of chicken cut to bite size
2 tablespoon of vegetable oil
3 Potatoes cut to bite size
3 to 4 carrots to bites size
1 onion sliced
Sugar to your taste
Fish sauce to your taste
Water as needed
if you like you can use bamboo shoots and long beans instead of potatoes and carrots all up to you.

For the Kroeung Curry paste

2 stalk or lemongrass white part only thinly sliced
2 to 3 big pieces of galangals thinly sliced
7 Kaffir lime leaves thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of salt
7 cloves of garlic
5 shallots
1 big red dried Mexican pepper soaked wash thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
1 tablespoon of shrimp paste
In a food processor or mortar and pestle pound everything to paste add shrimp paste last and set aside

For the vegetables

Long bean
Bean sprouts
Thai basils
Thai chilies
Banana blossom and so on
