I have travelled to Thailand a few times and this is by far and away my favourite Thai dish. I have tried to recreate this spicy chicken noodle broth using ingredients readily available in Western Europe. The paste recipe makes 8 servings, and proportions are provided for 2 meal servings.
The paste can be made ahead and frozen. It can then be fried, straight from the freezer, for a very quick meal.
You can also add prawns/shrimp to this recipe... I just don't happen to like them.
Goes nicely with a hoppy IPA (Indian Pale Ale) which will help take the sting out of the spice.
Just made this, was very tasty and easy. The preparation took me a while longer but that's me and its already done for next three times Only negative was that's it was pretty messy to eat but the taste makes up for that. Thanks for sharing - 26 May 2012
I added a few more noodles to bulk it out for larger appetites, very spicy hot but very tasty. Only downside is it's very messy to eat as previously mentioned. - 18 Oct 2016
