Pok Pok Khao Soi

When we were in Los Angeles last month we took the opportunity to go to Pok Pok (see my review in Restaurant Reviews).  We had an assortment of smaller plates … and chicken wings (yum!).  The folks next to us had some kind of yellow chicken curry that looked so good we wanted some.  So when we got home we decided to pull out our Pok Pok cookbook and give it a try.

The Pok Pok cookbook is great in that it gives you all the specific instructions for making everything from total scratch.   While I followed the recipe, I decided to step in after the ‘curry paste’ part and use my store bought yellow curry paste.

I sautéed onion, garlic, and 1 small can of curry paste, and added turmeric powder, mild Indian curry, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, salt, and lemongrass.  Then I added coconut milk and chicken broth, and a whole cut up chicken… and left to simmer for 45 minutes.  I served with noodles, lime, and cilantro.   It was as good as the dish at Pok Pok looked.  Yum!
