When you are under the weather, or you don’t have much energy to make anything, this is the perfect meal for you. However you do need to be able to take on a little spiciness with this one.
With this recipe, you’ll be able to have something homemade and with those classic thai flavours in there it will fight against a cold. Im no Doctor, obviously, but when I’m ill a broth always fixes me. It’s so nice to have, its like a warm hug.
I’ve made this recipe even easier with a little cheats way of using a ready made paste just to be less time consuming. You can even shred cooked chicken through instead of using prawns.
This spicy bowl of goodness is even great just on a cold evening to warm up your cockles. So get slurping those noodles with chopsticks so you have the lovely broth to look forward to at the bottom.
