Made this tonight and bland is an understatement, it was extremely sweet and totally lacked flavour, sadly for me I didn't see the previous comment until I had made this sickly sweet gloop. To try and give it some flavour, I fried up, onions, peppers, garlic and chilli to add some taste, it was passable but certainly would not recommend this recipe to anyone.

Tasted awful, and even after frying the noodles for over 1 1/2 minutes, the noodles still went slimy when in the soup making it a very odd, greasy texture. When adding the veg to the coconut milk and water, it obviously turned cold so all had to be reheated. I don't usually complain about food, but I couldn't ever eat this again.
