One of my most favorite and simple meals I like to cook is a Thai Stir Fry Curry. This vid was made before I stopped being a veg, just fyi. Prep Time: 10 mins Cook TIme: 5 mins Serves 4 people Ingredients: 2 Bundles Chinese Stir Noodles or Udon 1 Can Coconut Milk Assorted Steamed Vegetables and/or Tofu 2 Tbs Tamarind Paste 2 Tbs Soy Sauce 1 Tbs Rice Wine Vinegar 2 Tbs macerated garlic and honey mixture (1 part garlic to 1 part honey) 1 tsp Red (or Green or Yellow) Curry Paste Chili Paste to taste 2-3 Tbs Sesame or Vegetable oil 1 Tbs butter 1) Prepare steamed vegetables to desired doneness. 2) Place Noodles in boiling salted water. Cook approx. 3 minutes, strain in colander. 3) Combine tamarind paste, honey garlic mix, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, chili paste, and curry paste in a bowl and set aside. 4) Heat oil in a large wok on high heat. Make sure the pan is very hot. Place noodles in heated wok and toss to coat in oil. Keep the noodles moving to avoid them sticking to pan. Let the noodles fry for approximately 1 minute and then add your sauce mix. Stir to combine. Add vegetables and coconut milk. Stir constantly and allow the sauce to thicken. When the consistency is nearly right, add the butter. When it has melted completely, the curry is ready to serve. To make this vegan, just leave out the butter. For a low-fat version, use light coconut milk and leave out the butter.

    Of all the Indian cooks on utube, this woman is a genius.
    Everything she does is quite easy, and is a remarkable addition to the repetoire of Indian-loving Americans.
    Another person who did great things was Madhur Jaffrey.
    I always go to her restaurant in Upper East Side of Manhattan!
    These women are cultural gems.

  9. v21anand says:

    Hing is asafoetida and is available in Indian stores. It gives a very good flavour to the dish.

    Manjula aanti… You’re the best
    I watch your videos not only because your recipes are simple and taste great, but also because you’re so cuddly and cute. You remind me of my childhood days, when cuddly aunties used to feed me food :)

  13. chouhandeepti says:

    the English word for “hing” is Asafoetida. You could get it in any Asian grocery store.

  14. chouhandeepti says:

  19. FTWbiology says:

    I don’t know if her family is Vaishnava or not. But I am and we don’t eat onion or garlic. But indian food does use a spice called Hing that gives a similar flavor. Hare Krsna

  25. AddieWTH says:

    Nice one, thank you!

  26. binarynomad says:

    Ummm, one caution for those vegan, I believe that most traditional Thai curry pastes (red, green, panaeng) have shrimp paste as an ingredient. So you should either (a) check your ingredients, or (b) make your own. Bonus: Some helpful hints picked up from a Thai cooking class (a) Substitute Soy Sauce for Fish Sauce, (b) Substitute palm sugar for MSG, and (c) Substitute Mushroom sauce for Oyster Sauce.

  27. AnarchoHumanist says:

    FYI, honey is not vegan.

  28. decojuicer says:

    Man, this looks awesome. I’m going to give this a try soon.

  29. mtndubious says:

    If I tried to flip noodles like that they would be on the floor.

  30. TIPinkUnicorn says:

    Looks delicious.

  31. debbieomi says:

    I haven’t had a good curry in forever and I’ve been too lazy to cook it. This looks easy enough though, think I’ll give it a try. Thanks!

  32. ilikethewok says:

    Looks delicious!! Thx for this video.

  33. ThoughtfulAtheist says:

    youll notice that I mentioned a lighter recipe excluding the butter and using light coconut milk. Its still not the healthiest thing on the planet, but its not exactly terrible for you either. It IS worth a try, regardless though :)

  34. Paxmax says:

    yyuuuuuuum!!! RED curry FTW.

  35. bewarethelizards42 says:

    Tasty good! Man, I want some of this right now.

  36. LogicalSanity says:

    I agree with TDA. More veggie vids :)

  37. TheDisillusionedApe says:

    More vegetarian/vegan videos!! :D

  38. TheDisillusionedApe says:

    However, humans have advanced to the point where they can cease exploiting fellow sentient organisms. There are so many alternatives and spot-on meat imitations that to continue exploiting life, something which seems so rare in universe, is ethically and environmentally irresponsible. Just as we transitioned from hunters and gatherers to farmers and ranchers, I think we’ll be soon making a leap into humane diets, considering the growing obesity epidemic and lab-grown kill-less meats.

  39. jimrbsn says:

    The whole vegan thing is very odd to me, but this looks pretty tasty.
    Humans did not get to be humans by being vegans… if you look at evolution and stuff.
