this is based off a recipe i saw in a thai cookbook. the first time i made it i followed that more closely, but i couldnt remember exactly what i did this time, and didnt have the right [private], so i modified it a bit. i know the original didnt have the celery, but i think it was a nice addition. originally it was with thicker [private], more like fettuccine, but the angel hair was really nice in it, too.


1 lb angel hair pasta, broken in half
2 chicken legs deboned, cut into chunks
corn oil
3 stalks of celery sliced thin on a diagonal
1 large onion, cut into half julienne (1/8" x ~1" strips)
1 red pepper cut into half julienne
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 can coconut milk
2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp hawaij (yemenite spice mix similar to curry, substitute curry if you dont have it.)
1/4 cup chicken stock or water with chicken soup base

set a pot of water to boil for the [private]

Sautee the chicken in a wok in 1 Tbsp oil til just cooked, then remove and set aside, leaving the residual oil/fat in the wok.

add another Tbsp oil, heat it and sautee the celery for a minute. add then onion for another minute, then the pepper.

add the [private] to the water to start cooking, mixing now and then.

add then chicken back, allow to heat for a moment then add the soy sauce.

sautee that for a moment then add the rest of the ingredients.

bring to boil, stirring occasionally. hopefully by then the [private] will be done. drain them well and add to the sauce. mix well and serve garnished with a sprig of fresh cilantro.
