Thai Red Curry Glass Noodle Soup

Thai soups r always delicious, i have seen this soup in a Thai cookbook, this soup was quite bit spicy n very delicious, also creamy coz of coconut milk, initially the original recipe is with shrimps and vegetables, i skipped as usual the shrimps in this soup ..Its kinda hard to find out vegetarian recipes in thai cuisine, sometime we will be happy to see vegetarian dishes but the ingredients they used to prepare that particular dish will contain either fish sauce r shrimp paste, i hardly came across vegetarian recipes, needless to say that i skipped the meat r seafood they used to prepare thai dishes.. .this spicy glass noodle soup will be very prefect while its very cold and this spicy glass noodle soup goes to AWED - Thai by DK of Culinary Bazaar..

1small pack Bean threads/glass noodles
1cup Coconut milk
3nos Garlic crushed
1tbsp Lemongrass (small rings)
1tsp Galangal chopped
2tsp Thai red curry paste
3nos Lime leaves (chopped)
1cup Carrots,mushrooms, chinese cabbage pieces
1tsp White pepper powder
2tbsp Soya Sauce
1tbsp Sesame oil

Soak the bean threads/glass noodles in cold water for 10 minutes until they get softened... drain the water n keep aside, heat the sesame oil n add the chopped galangal, small rings of lemon grass n crushed garlic n fry for a while...add immediately the vegetables one by one n toss gently..meanwhile mix the red curry paste, soya sauce n coconut milk together n pour this to the tossed vegetables..bring them to boil, add the softened glass noodles after a while n cook in simmer.. put off the stove n garnish the soup with white pepper powder n chopped lime leaves...

Hot n Delicious Soup!!!
