Mee Noodles, Straw Mushroom & Chicken In Curry/Coconut Soup

At  first I was going to do a “authentic”  Malay, or Burmese ,or Thai, or Indonesian, or Indian, or whatever “authentic” coconut / curry / noodle / chicken dish. But then, for what ? There is a million and one recipes  (more or less “authentic”)  out there in the internet and book world available to anyone. But by now I believe  (hopefully)  that most of my readers subscribe to   “ChefsOpinion”  because of my interpretations of dishes and the ease  of which they can be duplicated more ore less closely  (adjust to whatever tickles your fancy).  So here we go,  Hans’ authentic  🙂  version of :  Mee Noodles, Straw Mushroom & Chicken In Curry/Coconut Soup.  Enjoy. Don’t break a leg running for authentic ingredients. Use what you’ve got available, what you like and what you can afford. The single most important authentic ingredient required for most dishes is love and passion. If you cook it and folk’s and you yourself love it –  Voilà ! Success !

  2. Edwina, use shrimp, beef, scallops, lobster, veggies only, whatever you prefer at the moment. It is FOOD, therefore you do what you like, not what a recipe dictates. Remember, most recipes are guidelines, to be interpreted as you see fit 🙂
    Bon Appetit !
