This is great and I did not find it watery at all. I was amazed to find that my husband liked it so much. My husband is not usually wowed by vegetarian food. We now have this as a regular staple in my house, and why not lo calorie and lo carb...what's not to love.

I make a soup similar to this. You begin by gently frying 2 teaspoons of green curry paste, a finely sliced red chilli, grated fresh ginger and garlic and then add about 500ml of chicken stock and simmer for 15 mins. After that you add the coconut milk (2 cans) and the mushrooms (which I always fry off first) as well as fresh coriander, fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar and a splash of sesame oil to taste. I serve it with rice noodles and offer shredded poached chicken breast for anyone who wants it. It's wonderful.

It was good but quite watery. I would add less than a can of extra water next time.

This was really nice. I added a teaspoon of palm sugar.
