Ginger, Garlic Noodle Curry Recipe
This noodle curry is packed with flavour from using lots of fresh ginger and garlic, paired with crunchy tenderstem and silky smooth udon noodles.Whether it’s a week night dinner, cooking for friends or instead of ordering from Wagamamas, this noodle dish will hit the spot.
Udon / Wheat Noodles- I’ve used a medium noodle, so a little thicker than an udon. However you can use udon noodles, or if you’re gluten free, rice noodles or soba noodles.
Ginger- This is a key ingredient as it gives the curry a beautiful fragrant and slight kick to the dish. You can either grate the ginger or finely dice it.
Tamari- I love using a bit of tamari in most dishes as it gives a lovely umami flavour.
Ginger- I use 4 cloves for this recipe however please feel free to use just three, especially if they’re large cloves.
Tips For Cooking This Recipe
Fresh Ginger- If you half the pice of fresh ginger then grate one half and finely chop the other half. The finely chopped half will be added at the beginning of the recipe as instructed, then add the grated half after you’ve added the coconut milk.
Timing the Tenderstem- By simply adding the tenderstem to the dish right at the end, then placing a lid over the top, helps steam the vegetable. Be sure to only steam for around 4-5 minutes to prevent it going soggy.
Fresh Lime- This is an important ingredient as adds the acidity. If you half the lime, add half of the juice at the beginning with the vegetable stock, then squeeze the remaining half over the curry once finished (or just a little squeeze over each serving bowl).
