How to make the Thai Chicken Noodle Soup (Mary Berry)

  2. Add the veggies. Into the poaching stock, add shallots, garlic, ginger, chilli, curry paste, fish sauce, sugar, and mushrooms. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add pak choi, coriander, and the cooked chicken to the pan, and simmer for an additional 3 minutes.
  3. Add seasoning. Stir in lime juice and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Cook the noodles. Just before serving, cook the noodle nests in a pot of boiling water following the packet instructions. 
  5. Serve. Drain and distribute the noodles among 6 soup bowls. Pour the hot soup over the noodles to serve.

Tips

  • The soup base can be made up to 8 hours ahead, allowing the flavours to develop even more.
  • When cooking the noodles, follow the packet instructions to ensure they are cooked to perfection.
  • Feel free to adjust the spice level by adding more or less Thai green curry paste according to your preference.
  • For added freshness, squeeze some lime juice over the soup just before serving.

Variations

  • Add your favourite vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, or baby corn to make it even more nutritious.
  • For a vegetarian version, replace the chicken with tofu or add extra mushrooms for a meaty texture.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add some sliced red chillies or a drizzle of sriracha sauce.
