Curry Leaves Aglio Olio


A very nice neighbor gave me a bunch of homegrown curry leaves and I was kind of craving for cereal prawns! But then again, we had rice the day before so I felt I had to come out with something pasta-ish for le husband. It was definitely an experiment for me but the result turned out superb! I paired it with Cereal Prawns to complete this fusion meal. I used (only) about 1.5 chilli padi for this meal and the husband was already sweating like a pig. So glad I didn’t use the initial 3 chilli padi i took out from the fridge or he may have died from a spice stroke. So please, adjust it to your level of spiciness. 🙂 For me, it was mildly spicy, for my ang moh… it was numbing. 😛

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 servings pasta (linguine/spaghetti), cooked in salted water
  • 2-3 tbsp pasta cooking water
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 chilli padi, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Handful of curry leaves (about 30)
  • Salt to taste

Heat oil on med.

Add chili and garlic.
Saute for 1-2 mins until fragrant.

Add curry leaves.

Saute until it gets crispy and garlic starts to brown a little around the edges.

Add pasta, 2-3 tbsp of pasta cooking water, toss, and season with salt.

Remove from heat and serve immediately.
Top with Cereal Prawn for a little oomph!

Bon appetit!!
