( Cooking Chart )
Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet and gently sauté the onion, garlic, and mushrooms until softened but not browned.
Add the fish, curry paste, and coconut milk and bring gently to a boil. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes before adding half the cilantro, the sugar, and fish sauce. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, soak the noodles for 3-4 minutes (check the package instructions) or until tender, and drain well through a colander. Put the colander and the noodles over a pan of simmering water. Add the scallions, bean sprouts and most of the basil and steam on top of the noodles for 1-2 minutes or until just wilted.
Pile the noodles onto warmed serving plates and top with the fish curry. Sprinkle the remaining cilantro and basil over the top and serve immediately.
