It would be a 400ml tin. Made last night. Very tasty - added a dash of fish sauce and juice of a lime too.

This recipe is simply fab! Since I discovered it last November I have made it on numerous occassions as a starter for dinner parties or as supper for two. Delicious.

It looks just like the picture and tastes wonderful. I put some hot chillies in with the veg to give it a bit more bite. Good as a starter at a dinner party.

A little rich for my taste. I would dilute the coconut milk next time.

A great light meal, I've made this a few times but this time made it with thai red curry paste, which made a much spicier soup, which I prefered! I also added a splash of fish sauce, lime juice and red chilli (if you want this extra hot)!

The recipe was straightforward, tasty and one that we will make again. We put in a lime juice at the end.

I've made this recipe many times now, as everyone loves it! It can hardly be improved on! Add a bit more curry paste to make it a bit spicier, or vary the noodles, but overall, quick and delicious.
