Curry Paste-

  • Grind garlic, ginger, coriander stems, coriander seeds, shallots, green chillies into a smooth paste using a blender. Add a little water while blending.
  • Heat oil in a large pot, add garlic and saute lightly. As the garlic begins to gain color, add shallots, and chillies. Stir and saute for 2-4 minutes until the shallots become slightly translucent.
  • Add the ground paste and cook over a medium flame for 4-5 minutes. Add besan and stir to combine. Cook further for 2 minutes and stir continuously. Slowly add the vegetable broth and keep mixing until there are no lumps.
  • Add the vegetable, salt and simmer for 20 minutes and let the flavors infuse well in the broth.
  • Add coconut milk and mix well. Turn off the heat and set aside to serve. 


  • In a pot, bring water to a boil, add some salt and oil to the water to prevent noodles from sticking. Add the noodles and cook for 3-4 minutes until the noodles are soft but still have a slight bite to it (al dente). Drain the noodles and give them a quick rinse in cold running water and set aside. 


  • Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat, Add sliced shallots and fry till it becomes golden brown. Use a skimmer to remove the shallots and place over a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • In the same pan, add garlic and fry till it browns. Remove and place over a paper towel. Follow the same process for ginger and noodles.


  • To serve, assemble all the topping on a serving platter. Arrange a bowl with fresh noodles. Top it over with the coconut milk broth and add the toppings and enjoy hot!
