Set Instant Pot in the saute mode and add oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic, onion, and green onion. Saute for two to three minutes.
Now add the Thai green curry paste and water. Mix well and make sure you scrape the bottom. Let it cook for 30 seconds, and then add the salt and sugar and mix well. Next, add the chopped vegetables and mix well. Now turn off the Instant Pot.
Add the remaining 2.75 cups of water and the dried udon noodles. Make sure you immerse the noodles well inside the water.
Close the Instant Pot. Make sure the vent is in the sealing position. Select manual/pressure cook and set the time to 3-minutes at high-pressure mode. When the cooking is complete, quickly release the remaining pressure. Carefully open the lid after releasing the pressure, and this how the noodle soup will look.
And mix the noodles gently. Set the Instant Pot in saute mode again.
Now add 1 cup of coconut milk, the basil leaves, and the scallion's green part. Simmer it for two minutes, and that's it. While simmering, you can check for the seasoning, and if required, you can add more curry paste, the remaining ½ tbsp measure. I did add it. And if you feel the curry is spicy, add brown sugar and salt as needed. Serve immediately.
Cook for three mts at high-pressure mode and release the pressure quickly or 2 minutes and do 10 minute NPR. Do not go beyond that as noodles will become mush. Also, serve it right away.
Instead of green curry paste, you can use red curry paste.
Also, I went with dried udon noodles. But I have tried this recipe with regular wheat noodles as well, and that's what I shared on my IG. The same timing works well for that. You can use rice noodles, but I haven't tested the recipe with rice noodles, though.
I am sure the thick brown rice noodles should work with the same timing, but I need to test the thin rice noodles.
Adjust the curry paste, salt, and sugar as per your taste.
For this noodle, you can use up to 500 grams of vegetables. The vegetables need to have a bite, so this timing works perfectly.
Instead of plain water, you can add vegetable broth for enhanced flavor.
