Chicken curry pasta or spaghetti, spicy, savory with different flavors

Updated on September 2, 2012

Combining pasta with curry

As we all know, curry a spicy and popular dish from Asia, widely cooked in India and Thailand. The Thai curry version has different ingredients in comparison to other Asian curries in general.

You may expect to taste ginger, garlic, cumin, cilantro, red or green peppers, from a Thai curry paste. In South East Asia countries just like in Thailand, people would eat curry with rice or noodles.

So when we speak of noodles we can relate it to pasta, because somehow they share similar characteristics. I bet you already have tried curry noodles before, and why don’t you create the pasta version of curry noodles?

Have you ever tried Malaysian Laksa? It does taste amazing, full of flavors and spice. Wait,

combining pasta with curry? Will it work? The only way to know how it taste is trying to simply cook it.

I did try to cook it, and I think the taste is delicious and spicy. So combining western ingredients in pasta and Asian curry is not really such a bad idea after all.

Spicy curry pasta

The curry pasta recipes will have different taste depending on what type of curry paste you are using. For Thai curry paste in particular they are easily differentiated by its color.

Basically there are three main types of Thai curry paste, and they are the green paste, red paste, and yellow paste.

The green curry paste, basic ingredients would be lemongrass, green chilies, or jalapeño, shallot, purple onion. In addition to add more green to the color of the paste, chopped coriander or cumin are threw in.

Of course there are a few more ingredients added such as fish sauce, shrimp paste, brown sugar and coconut milk to make the green paste curry.

The red curry paste, basically the main ingredients are the same to those available in green curry paste, the only differences are those few ingredients that make up the red color to the paste.

So in this case you may the red chilies or cayenne pepper, as well as tomato ketchup or tomato purée to make much stronger red color. Sometimes people would add chili powder to make it even hotter.

The yellow curry paste, just like the green and red curry paste, the yellow color come from the basic ingredients that have natural yellow color in them.

So instead of red or green chilies, yellow chilies are added into the mixture. Galangal or ginger also the key ingredients for making the yellow curry paste.
