I usually make this Thai-inspired soup in the slow cooker but you can make it on the stove as well. It's a delicious alternative to the 'normal' winter warmer veg soup with a twist. You can serve it to a family with thick consistency as a meal along with naan bread or crusty loaf (my kids ages 2-11 love it!) or serve it to grown up friends along with a glass of wine! I think it's a very versatile and delicious dish.
I threw this together with bits I had left in my cupboards and fridge, and it was very nice, quick to prepare.
This is really simple with no need to marinate. Can make it as hot as you want - although Jalfrezi is normally medium hot. Just put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and enjoy the smells throughout the house!!!
