Instructions
  1. Add the oil to a large deep skillet, heat then add the onion and cook until translucent, then add the garlic and ginger. Cook for a few more minutes, then mix in the cinnamon and add the bay leaves.
  2. Add the chicken to the pan and cook 8-10 minutes or until it changes color, then add the turmeric, coriander, soy sauce, cumin, chili powder, chicken stock, and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the corn starch to half a cup of water, and stir that into the pan and reduce heat to a simmer and cook until thickened. Then add the coconut milk. and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. While the pan is simmering, boil some water in a pot and cook the egg noodles until tender, and drain.
  5. To serve, add some egg noodles to a bowl, spoon some curry over the top and top with condiments of your choice, such as a hard boiled egg, Bird's Eye chilies, chopped onion, etc.
Recipe Notes

The chicken would cost about 50 Baht/600 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 37 cents per servings.

Variant: In place of the chicken, you can use prawns, fish, pork, or beef.

  1. Thanks, Lee for sharing. I have all ingredients except chicken breasts and coconut milk, I would def make it and share with my Burmese neighbors soon ! Once in a while we go to eat Vietnamese food or sushi but that is all, my kids are picky !

    • Thanks, Irina. It really is good. I look forward to your results. Keep in mind, beef or pork can also be used 🙂

  2. My husband Lee, make this for the family last night, the flavor is very good and I ask him to make this again with beef next time.

  3. I made this on 17 Aug 2017, very straight forward, and it goes together fast, reason why I did not get any step by step photos. This is delicious! Highly recommended.
