Recipe: Northern Thai Curry Noodles

The Thai curry is quite popular in Chiang Mai street food which most Asian will serve it with rice. The food from the north as Thai curry is revealing of the Thai region’s seasonal and relatively cold climate.

The flavour of the curry comes from Thai red curry paste, coconut milk and curry powder, which are readily available in the Asian market. The combination with the crispy shallots is so incredible, making the curry tastes perfect.

  • Six garlic cloves (roughly chopped)
  • Two shallots
  • 2-6 tsp Thai red curry paste
  • Four tsp curry powder
  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1-pound chicken thighs (pieces)
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 3 tsp sugar


  1. Heat the vegetable oil (use the medium heat) and fry the garlic with shallots until fragrant smell. Add the curry paste powder and let it cook for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir the coconut milk, chicken broth, chicken pieces, fish sauce and sugar. When it’s boiled, decrease the temperature and simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes while occasionally stirring.
