Thai Curry Noodles (Gang Kheow Won) is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Sunday Funday. We join  up  once a week to post recipes on changing topics.

This week we are discussing and sharing recipes that use spicy chillies, chiles or hot peppers. I decided to share a favorite recipe of mine for spicy Asian style noodles with chicken.

Thai Curry Noodles

A local Thai place makes a version of this which they call “Spaghetti Gang Kheow Won”. Typically, gang kheow won refers to just a curry served with rice.

In making it for myself, I chose to use fresh Asian noodles instead of spaghetti, and not use typical Thai rice noodles (as you might for pad thai). The veggies are probably different. I know Thai eggplant, (the small round green ones) are used in the curry, but not in the noodles at the local place.

I added the long beans just because I find them interesting, and also a nice green veggie. Use fresh green beans if you need to, but long beans are not simply long green beans. They are slightly more fibrous and the flavor a tiny bit different.

Shiitake mushrooms are fantastic in this- I know they cost more, but they do weep less than white mushrooms. The green curry paste you can make your own or use your favorite brand.

I really enjoyed this version of noodles and it exceeded my expectations. It’s nice to have Thai noodles that aren’t as sweet as the usual Pad Thai or Pad Sieewe. I think if you are dieting, you might get by substituting shirataki noodles by rinsing them and adding to the coconut milk.

    • I’ve noticed that a lot of them overdo it with the palm sugar. I like mine heavier with fish sauce and heat.
