Pasta...1 lb ~450g

Water...5 litres ~5 quarts

Salt...1 tbsp.

Coconut milk...500ml ~16 oz

Garlic (finely chopped)...1 tbsp.

Ginger (finely chopped)...1/2 tbsp.

  • You can use any pasta of your choice for this dish. I used Cellentani pasta i

  • Take 5 quarts (approx. 5 L) of water in a pot and add 1 tablespoon of salt to it

  • Give it a quick stir and bring it to a boil.

  • Add the pasta in and cook it till it's 90% done (al dente)

  • The cook time should be mentioned on the package

  • Drain the pasta water

  • Sprinkle a little oil so they don't stick to each other. Set it aside

  • Set a pan on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil

  • Add garlic, add ginger and stir fry for 30 seconds

  • Add carrots and broccoli florets and stir fry for another 30 seconds

  • Add corn kernels and give it a quick stir

  • Add coconut milk and add the stock cubes

  • If the stock cube is very salty use only one. You can also substitute stock cubes with soy sauce

  • Place the lid on for approximately five minutes

  • Make sure that the stock cubes mix in well

  • Add bell peppers and half the coriander leaves

  • Mix some coconut milk into the green curry paste so it doesn't form lumps

  • Add it in and mix thoroughly

  • Add pre-boiled pasta and mix well

  • Place the lid on for two minutes

  • Add lime zest and fresh lime juice

  • If you have Kaffir lime leaves, you need not use lime zest

  • Garnish with the remaining coriander leaves and chopped spring onion greens

  • Check for salt and add more if needed.

  • If it's too salty you can add some milk

  • Done!

  • If you want your pasta to be more soupy just add more coconut milk or normal milk.

  • Make it tastier by adding eggplant and basil leaves!

  • Add some chicken or shrimp to make it even better!
