Thai Drunken Noodles

I have such a back log of recipes over the weekend!! Will try and post them or else I might forget the recipes of the new stuff I tried. As it is, I am so not a person who cooks by measurements!! Its always eye balling.. If I feel, I make it more spicy or less spicy, more or less tangy and so on and so forth. But nowadays I have started to try and measure (again approximate as I will never use measuring spoons other than for baking!)... just for the blog. But it really is difficult! Hmm.. anywayz... back to the recipe!

As said in my earlier post, I wanted to try and make the drunken noodles that i had for the first time ever(!) in Krung Thai, Las Vegas. Well, my version didnt taste exactly the same, but OH MAN.. was it good!! All the tastes tied together... spicy, tangy, sweet and sour!!! It was one of my best creations! But let me warn you... it was SPICCCYYYY!!! On a scale of 1-5 for spiciness, it was 6.. hehehe!!! I guess one can decrease the spiciness by adding less chili flakes and green chillies.

I didnt get the dark color I was looking for... which I later thought might be coz of the absence of Oyster sauce which I didnt have on hand. If you add oyster sauce, do add less salt.

Ingredients:
4-5 oz Thai Flat Rice Noodles (I brought these from Trader Joes)
3/4 cup cubed tofu
1/4 cup diced or long slit boneless chicken
1/4 green bell pepper, sliced vertically
1/4 red bell pepper, sliced vertically

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
2 tbspn chopped garlic
1/4 medium onion, chopped
2-3 green chillies, chopped

Marinade:
3 tbspn red chilli flakes
2 tbspn vinegar
2 tbspn fish sauce
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tspn sugar
1/2 tbsp fresh ground pepper
1 tspn Salt

1 1/2 tbspn soya sauce
1 tbspn Oyster Sauce (I didnt add it)
1/4 cup Basil leaves, chopped

Method:
  • In a bowl, marinate the tofu with red chilli flakes, vinegar, fish sauce, lemon juice, sugar, ground pepper and salt.
  • Spoon 3-4 spoons of the marinade and add to the chicken.
  • Assemble all and keep aside for 1/2 an hr, so that the tofu and chicken soaks up on the flavors, or else the tofu will taste really bland.
  • Boil enough water (to cover the noodles). As soon as it starts boiling, add **2 tbsp of salt and 1 tspn oil** to it and immediately add the flat noodles.
  • Keep on stirring so that the noodles dont stick to each other. Cook for about 15 mins or till it is cooked el dante.
  • Drain the noodles with cold water and set aside.
  • Place a wok on high heat and swirl olive oil in the wok on all sides.
  • Add the chopped garlic, onions, green chillies, cilantro and saute.
  • Immediately add the chicken with its marinade and stir fry till it is cooked properly.
  • Now add the tofu alongwith its marinade, vegetables, noodles, soya sauce and the basil leaves and stir well to bind all the ingredients.
Garnish with some more cilantro and/or basil leaves and serve.

Note:
** Salt is added, so that the noodles soak some salt flavor, or else it will be bland. Oil is added to minimize the sticking of noodles.
**You can make this dish vegetarian, by eliminating chicken and substituting fish sauce with soya sauce however the flavor wont be as robust.
