K’thiew Cha Kroeung (stir fried noodles w/ chili paste)
We had leftover noodles from the k’thiew soup, so I made a lighter version of k’thiew cha kroeung. Traditionally, it’s cooked with pork and shrimps. The kroeung (paste) is made from dried red chilies, garlic, and shallot. It’s not the green kroeung with lemongrass. (I think that one would taste nice with noodles, too!) The noodles are topped with egg strips and served with soy sauce. Sounds kinda similar to regular k’thiew cha!
