Thai Curry Fettuccine has a curry based sauce highlighted with bamboo shoots and peas. An authentic taste of Asia that is flavorful and very easy to prepare.
It is fantastic being able to get your hands on so many items in the grocery stores these days. Even the big food chains have organic produce and organic canned goods as well.
You can also find ethnic ingredients in their own specialty sections. Red curry paste is in the Asian section and it is right above the bamboo shoots. We are so lucky.
Thai Curry Fettuccine is super simple and wait until you taste the final sauce.
A bit spicy and a little sweet it all comes together to make one of the most flavorful and unique pasta dishes out there.
I made Easy Curry Rice for the blog a while ago and it’s completely different. The curry spice is strictly from curry powder not paste.
The Curry Rice is also a really nice side dish. This is what it looks like:
You can also freeze this dish in an airtight freezer container but I actually didn’t get to do that.
I ate it for lunch two days in a row and, believe me, I was really looking forward to those lunches.

I’m sure you’ll be as happy as I was to have a simple and delicious meal that is already done and just needs to be heated in a saucepan or microwave.
Either way it is quick!
What Kinds of Curry are There?
- Curry is a lot of things. It comes in all kinds of shapes and forms and colors.
- There are sauces as in a spicy spiced curry that mixes so well with noodles and rice. No curry included. The curry is actually the sauce.
- Curry powder is probably sitting in your cupboard right now. It’s made up of many different spices and comes to us in a little jar to help us give depth to our cooking.
- You can buy curry pastes in jars and they come as red curry paste and green curry paste. A little bit goes a long way.
- There are also small curry cubes that are used in Japanese cooking. Not so spicy but a great addition to sauces.
- For this recipe, there is both curry powder and curry paste and it is a mildly sweet creamy sauce that you’ll want to make for other recipes too.
So you can see there’s no reason to ever be confused. You are now armed with the information you need to talk ‘foodie’.
