Stir Fried Tom Y Noodles With Coconut Milk

Stir Fried Tom Yum Noodles With Coconut Milk
Most of the time I’ll cook with wherever I can find in my pantry or fridge and improvise. The result sometimes amazingly mouth-watering nor fit for the bins only..well that happens once a while..come-on  we are human rite..tend to make silly mistake. This is an appetizing, spicy, tangy and umami-filled seafood dish with delicious Thai flavors.  I used tom yum paste for today's recipes and accentuated the flavors with some fresh lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. You can either make the tom yum paste from scratch or just find a good store-bought version.  I think it is totally fine to use store-bought pastes when the lack of time calls for it and since I almost always feel the need to doctor up my pastes, I have not really have bad experiences with any store-bought pastes I've used except for probably once or twice.

This Tom Yum fried noodles recipe makes for a quick, easy and totally satisfying meal. Fried noodles are a popular and very common dish in Asia, with each country in the region having so many variants of it. A seafood style fried noodle dish might feature thin, mee hoon-style noodles with calamari and prawns while a spicier fried noodle dish might feature see-through "glass noodles" with a large dose of chili and a hint of sourness to it - there are as many variations as there are noodles and ingredients!  A fusion between Malaysian and Thai cuisine - Thailand's famous spicy Tom Yum paste is used to cook and flavor Malaysian-style fried noodles. The taste is a balance of hot and sour flavors that will leave you wanting more-wht more can a hungry tummy ask for.......
