Kung Pao Spaghetti

I previously made Kung Pao Chicken with fried rice and in the recipe I replaced peanuts with cashews but I only did it because I made it and I can do whatever I want to my recipes because mAh lyF, mAh rUlx.

I heard from someone that somewhere in California, USA there is a restaurant named California Pizza Kitchen which serves Kung Pao Spaghetti. So, I said HEY! let's try that out and I did some research and finally found the perfect HALAL ingredients for this delicious thing.


450 grams of spaghetti or pasta of your choice

3 chicken breasts cut into strips

1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts

salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons of garlic paste (one for the chicken and one for the gravy)

2/3 cup soy sauce

1 cup chicken stock

2 tablespoons of red grapes vinegar

2 tablespoons red chili paste
(if you cannot find it in the market I will tell you how to make it in this recipe)

1/4 cup of brown sugar

2 tablespoons of cornflour

2 spring onions finely chopped

First of all let me teach ya'll how to make red chili paste if you cannot find it in the market.

Just take approximately 50 dried long red chilies, remove there stems and soak them in hot water for 30 minutes.

Drain them and if seeds come out then drain them as well.

Now blend the soaked red chilies with 4 tablespoons of white vinegar and stop when you it becomes a red paste.

Heat 4 tablespoons of oil in a non stick pan and on low heat stir that paste in that oil, sprinkle some salt and a teaspoon of garlic paste. Mix it all together and take off heat.

Store in a jar.

That's it. Okay?

BEWARE! this red chili paste will burn the world down.

Now let's get down .... to business.

Cook the spaghetti or the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. I am using whole wheat linguine. I am not dieting, I exercise and eat what I want.

Put some salt and black pepper on the chicken according to your ungrateful taste-buds. Add some garlic paste as well. Mix it well and keep it aside.

Now, we prepare the gravy.

Put 2 tablespoons of cornflour in a bowl and whisk it with chicken stock. Then add garlic paste, chili paste, soy sauce, red grapes vinegar and brown sugar.

Now we cook.

Add 2-3 tablespoons of oil in a non stick pan and fry the chicken until it's completely cooked.

Add the gravy mixture in the chicken and cook it for 2-4 minutes until your desired thickness is achieved.

Now if the gravy is thick enough as per your liking add the spaghetti or pasta whatever the hell have you decided along the peanuts and spring onions.

Mix it well and your Kung Pao Spaghetti is ready to be served HOT.

Ladies and gentlemen, do whatever you want but you're not gonna get to taste this.
