Thai red curry noodles serving presentation 1

Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup

This is such a quick and easy dish to make and yet so versatile and packed full of flavour. You can substitute prawns for chicken and mix and match on the veggies as well, whatever way you do it you’re in for a treat! Using the quantities below this will easily serve 3 hungry people, but it also scales up easily and you don’t have to be exact about quantities. I like to use “straight to wok” or easy cook noodles, my personal preference is for the thicker Udon style noodle, but you can really go with whatever you prefer. I recommend  to cook this no more than an hour or so before you plan to serve or the noodles swell too much if left to sit.
