Spicy Prawn and Mushroom with Egg Noodles

Have you guys heard of the floating book shop called the Logos Hope . It is a ship full of books and can you believe this all of the people who work there are not paid , they work voluntarily , just like it's name their main purpose is to bring hope to people . The money they make selling books is used for charity , what a noble idea it is right ? .In this day and age where selfishness and blatant disregard for others are the most common traits , people like these are very rare to find and everyone can learn something from them .

 They have all kinds of books on board and I  love to read books and especially how a new book smells ( I know it's weird ) ,I'll read anything but  my most favourite kind of books are cookbooks . I love to flip through the pages and drool  at the beautiful pictures . As a little girl , this ship used to come to our city once in a year and I used to bug my parents to take me there and came back a happy girl from there with a load of books and most of them used to be cook books , cooking was passion even then too . Sadly all good things have to come to an end ,the ship then stopped coming .Then something wonderful happened a couple of months back , the ship was scheduled to come here and you can imagine my excitement over that news , I just couldn't wait for it to get here and show my hubby and kids . Oooooh ! I really felt like a little girl again and took my hubby and the kids there and as usual bought a whole load of books and came back , going back there I had such wonderful memories and above all that I could show my kids my favourite place .

Ok enough of my blabbing , I am not boring you anymore , I just mentioned it because the recipe I am posting is from one such book I bought from there , it is a wonderful book with all easy recipes and noodles being my favourite I had to make this , it is spicy and aromatic and just yummy so here goes........


1 tbsp oil
1 onion chopped
1 fresh red chilli chopped finely
1 tbsp thai red curry paste
grated zest and juice of 1 lime
250 gms prawns
400 gms canned button mushrooms
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
225 gms egg noodles

Heat the oil and add the onions and chilli and saute for a couple of min.
Add the curry paste and the lemon zest and saute for a couple of min .
Add the prawns , mushrooms, lemon juice , fish sauce and the soy sauce .
Mix it all up and cook till the prawns are done .
Cook the noodles in boiling water for a few min and drain and toss it in the prawn mix.
