    This wonderfully spicy and comforting soup comes from Malaysia. I saw it in a Health Food Magazine. The recipe can be made with chicken only. This soup is very similar to Vietnamese Pho soup which is one of my favourite soups.


    • 4 cups ( 1 L) homemade or low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock,
    • 2 tsp (10 ml) olive oil
    • 3/4 lb (350 g) chiken breast fillets, trimmed and cut into thin strips
    • 1 1/2 oz (40 g) Thai red curry paste
    • 1 cup (250 ml) coconut milk
    • 2 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded (optional)
    • 1/2 (225 g) brown rice vermicelli noodles
    • 12 shrimps (size 21/25), cooked and peeled
    • Garnishes:
    • 2 green onions, finely sliced on the diagonal
    • 1 cup bean sprouts
    • 2 tbsp (30 ml) firmly packed fresh coriander, mint leaves or a combination of the two
    • 1 lime cut into wedges
    • Sambal chili paste to taste (optionalo)


    1. Pour stock in a pot and bring to a boil.
    2. Heat oil in an other large saucepan; brown chicken in batches and reserve. Add curry paste to saucepan and cook for 1 minute over medium-high heat, stirring continously until fragrant. Add the hot stock, coconut milk and kaffir lime leaves (if using). Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
    3. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Crush noodles slightly with fingers and add to the pot of water; stir to prevent noodles from sticking. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until noodles are cooked. Drain well. Divide noodles, shrimp and chicken among 4 bowls and pour hot soup over. Add garnishes and serve immediately. Serves 4.
