Chang Mai noodle soup


  • Boil 200 ml coconut milk in a large heavy-bottomed pot and bring to the boil, continually stirring until it separates. Then add the curry paste and turmeric. Mix in really well and cook for a few more minutes. Add the chicken and cook until sealed and well coated, continually stirring.
  • Then add the remaining coconut milk with the stock, fish sauce, soy and lime juice. Mix well, scraping down the sides, and gently simmer for about 20 mins.
  • At the last minute, stir in the bok choy and carrots.
  • While the soup is cooking, soak the noodles in boiling water for 2-3 mins, separating with tongs as you do so. Drain well.
  • To serve, place noodles in individual bowls and ladle plenty of the soup over the top. Garnish with chillies, spring onions and coriander.
