Your taste buds are in for a treat with this delicious Thai soup, and best of all it pairs so well with the Delheim Pinotage Rosé. Who said rosé was just for summer-sipping?
Khao Soi is from Northern Thailand – a noodle soup with an amazing combination of flavours and texture. And it only takes 15 minutes to make!
200g Roka Pad Thai Noodles
2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil
1 onion finely chopped
A thumb size piece of ginger, grated
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red pepper, diced
1-3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste, the more you use the spicier it gets, you decide
1 can coconut milk
500ml chicken stock
1 teaspoon turmeric
4 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
300g chicken fillets grilled and cubed
Fresh coriander or basil
Prepare Noodles – Follow the instructions on the packet.
In a medium pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onion, red pepper, garlic, ginger, red Thai curry paste and turmeric. Sauté until fragrant and golden, about 4 minutes.
Add the stock, sugar, soy sauce and coconut milk bring to a simmer and add the diced chicken. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the noodles and serve with fresh herbs, bean sprouts and a squeeze of lime.
Finally, and most importantly, pour yourself a glass (or more!) of Delheim’s Pinotage Rosé and spoil your taste buds. Cheers!
