I am obsessed with noodles and noodle bowls.. so I am always looking for different flavors and cuisines that can lend themselves to delicious bowls of yummy noodles. This is a great example:

2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 pound chicken thighs with bone, skin off
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
4 green onions
4 garlic cloves
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled
½ cup chicken broth
1 large onion, sliced
10 to 12 curry leaves, chopped
3 ½ cups chicken broth
1 13.5 ounces can coconut milk
1 tablespoon fish sauce
Juice of one large lime
1 teaspoon honey
12 ounces any kind of noodles, cooked according to directions
10 ounces baby spinach, chopped

Heat a large saucepan with the peanut oil. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon salt, cumin and coriander. Brown the chicken on both sides on medium heat for 5 minutes each. Take the chicken out and add the sliced onion and curry leaves. Saute for 5 to 6 minutes on medium heat. In the meantime, transfer the green onions, garlic, ginger and ½ cup chicken broth to a blender. Blend well and add to the pan. Add the chicken broth and the browned chicken. Bring to a boil and simmer on a low heat, covered with a lid for 20 minutes. Take the chicken pieces out and let cool. Shred the meat off the bones and keep aside. In the meantime, add the coconut milk, fish sauce, lime juice and honey. Simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes, check for seasonings. Add the shredded chicken and cooked noodles. Bring to a boil and check for seasonings again. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve with a wedge of lime.
