Curry Carbonara Recipe Experiment - Test Kitchen Vlog

TheAimlessCook's picture
Curry Carbonara mixes the exotic spice of curry with creamy egg yolks in this really easy pasta recipe. Carbonara consists of 4 classic elements: egg yolks, cheese, bacon and black pepper. I am experimenting tonight with some Szechuan peppercorn, a Chinese ingredient that has a signature numbing sensation on the palate. Let's see what happens...
Ingredients
  Smoked bacon 4 , slice (Double smoke bacon (extra thick) used, cut into bite size pieces)
  Fresh asparagus 85 Gram, cut into 1-inch sections (Keep the tips of the asparagus)
  Szechuan peppercorn 1⁄2 Teaspoon, ground
  Pasta 165 Gram (Rice pasta cooked and strained)
  Egg yolks 2 Large
  Curry powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
Directions

MAKING
1. In a skillet fry the bacon until crisp.
2. Cook the rice pasta in boiling water. While the pasta is cooking blanch the asparagus sections in the same boiling water for about 1 minute.

FINALIZING
3. In a serving bowl put the boiled pasta mixed along with the crispy fried bacon and blanched asparagus.
4. Mix in the egg yolks. Add the curry powder and szechuan pepper corns as well. Season with some salt.

SERVING
5. Serve warm.
