Red Curry Noodle Soup (Khaub Poob or Khao Poon) is a Lao dish. Khaub poob or Khao Poon is pronounced as “Ka Poon.” This dish has spread to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, and US. There are various versions of this dish.

This is one of my favorite comfort food. I grew up eating khaub poob and it always taste good. We would make enough to eat for lunch and dinner. I love the spicy and sour flavor of the curry. It looks delicious when the liquid is more red, but orange is alright too. I wouldn’t mind eating this for days.

Red Curry Noodle Soup (Khaub Poob or Khao Poon)

Recent studies have claimed that curry is one of the cures to attack the common cold and flu. Hot spices are a high source of vitamin C. This can help prevent and fight the common cold. I definitely agree. I always feel better after eating this curry soup when I have a cold.

This recipe is spicy so if you don’t like spicy, reduce the amount of Mae Ploy Curry Paste.

Ingredients:
  • 10-12 cups of water
  • 1 whole chicken or 4 thighs
  • 1 can of Coconut Milk
  • ½ cup Mae Ploy Red Curry Paste (determine the spiciness of the curry)
  • 4 oz Maesri Red Curry Paste
  • 1-2 cans (5.6 oz each) Curry Gravy
  • 1/4 cup Garlic, minced
  • 2 cups Bamboo shoots, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Chicken Bouillon
  • Salt, to taste
  • 32 oz Vermicelli Rice Noodles
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 can Quail Eggs
  • 8 Boiled Eggs (Instead of Quail eggs)
  • 2 tbsp Asian Paprika (Make the liquid red, Optional)
  • 1 tbsp Ground Chili Oil (Spicy, make the liquid red, Optional)
  • 1 tsp Crab Paste with bean oil (Make the liquid red, Optional)
  • 2-3 Ginger slices (Optional)
  • Sugar, to taste (Optional)
Condiments:
  • Green Onions
  • Cilantro
  • Limes
  • Cabbage
  • Lettuce
  • Mint
  • Basil

Vermicelli noodles

After the noodles are cook, drain the water and stir in cold water; draining several times until cool to touch.

Vermicelli Noodles

Grab a bunch of noodles using the thumb and index finger, smoothing out any stray noodles. Put the bunch noodles in a strainer. Some people like to put them in circles. My mom taught me how to put the noodles in by starting in the center and laying in a spiral. It is easier to grab the noodles when they are dry. If you just put the noodles in without making sections, then it will be stuck together when the noodles are dry.
