tomato and stir fry for 2 minutes more. Lastly add the water, cover the
pan, and cook for 30 minutes, or until the hen is tender.

4. Cool the curry. Remove all the meat from the bones, cut into cubes,
and mix with the remaining curry sauce. Slice the giblets.

5. In a large dish, cover the noodles with boiling water and let stand for
15 minutes. Drain well and set aside.

6. Each person helps himself, putting the food on his plate in the
following order: first a generous helping of rice noodles and a heaping
tablespoon of the hen and sauce. Then sprinkle over that 1 or 2 teaspoons
of 'besan', several slices of onion, scallion, coriander, 2 or 3 teaspoons
fish sauce, and a pinch of the hot chili flakes. Each diner mixes his own
salad on his plate and squeezes lime juice over all.

Eat at room temperature and help yourself to seconds, mixed to taste.


The curried hen can also be served on its own with plain rice.
