Used chicken breasts instead of turkey. Full fat coconut, instead of "light". Very tasty and filling.

This is great. Really simple and tasty too. Ideal after work. I halved all the ingredients (cooking for 2) but I would probably add more paste next time as I like things hot (or buy better paste!) Highly recommend this!

Great easy meal. I substituted the turkey for chicken breast and whole prawns which was delicious and added a bit more substance. 2tbsp of the curry paste added a nice kick without too much heat, could definitely add a bit more chilli if you like it hot. Very simple to cook, i would definitely make it again.

I haven't really cooked anything like this before but found it really easy to make and it tasted delicious. I used 2 tbsp of thai curry paste which gave a lovely flavour and heat, and I cheated with some fine thread straight to wok noodles - no-one noticed! Would definitely make again for an easy midweek meal and something different to do with diced turkey.

Nice easy soup to make. We used pre-cooked turkey strips and fresh rice noodles.
