Green Curry Noodles

Traffic on last Friday was especially very tiring. I sat in the car for almost 1 hour 30 minutes before I reached home. After that horrible traffic I was not in the mood to go out for dinner, did not want to spend more than 15-20 minutes in the kitchen, and did not want to eat same old daal-rice/khichadi. So l looked around in my stash of sauces and found a bottle of green curry paste, can of coconut milk so I decided to make vegetable green curry. While I was making the curry, I remembered I have some brown rice noodles too! Voila! A new dish was born!!!

Serves 2 - for dinner

3-4 servings of Rice noodles - cook per directions on the packet. Drain and set aside. Toss with little bit of oil to prevent them from sticking.

1 Large Potato (I used Russet)
1 Large Onion
Fist size Cauliflower
Fist size Broccoli
1 Small Carrot (or few baby carrots)
1/2 cup diced Butternut Squash
Fistful of Cilantro
1 Small Blob of Ginger
2-4 tbsp Green Curry Paste
Salt per taste
1/2 cup Coconut milk
1 tbsp Oil
Hot water as needed

Preparation - 
Cut all the vegetables in 1/2" dice. Keep them separate as cooking time varies. 
Heat oil on a heavy bottom pan, add diced onion. Saute until translucent.
Not add diced carrots and potato. Saute for 3-4 minutes. Add little bit of salt and mix. Cover and let the potatoes cook on low heat. It approximately took 3-4 minutes.
Add diced butternut squash and saute. Cover and let it cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Now add cauliflower and broccoli saute for just a minute or so. Add about 1/2 cup of hot water, cover and let it cook for couple more minutes.
Meanwhile grind ginger and cilantro to fine paste. 
Now add green curry paste, ginger-cilantro paste and coconut milk.Cover and let it simmer for few more minutes.
Add cooked noodles, mix thoroughly. Adjust salt if needed.

Enjoy with nice side salad.

Tips - 
It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I think tofu will taste great instead of potato but I did not have any.
Adding small green chili in the cilantro paste will add nice zing to it.
