Have now had this several times. Always very quick and easy to make, and always extremely tasty. One of my husbands favourites!

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

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)!
