There is a Vietnamese restaurant in New York City that serves a delicious chicken curry-coconut soup. This is my easy home version. Enjoy!

Great recipe. Easy to follow for such an authentic flavor. I'm not sure if I added too much pasta. I didn't have as much liquid as I would have liked. I'm remaking today. Yum! Read More

The flavors were spot on and delicious. But it was more of a pasta dish than a soup. If I made it again I would consider increasing the amount of stock and decreasing the amount of pasta. Read More

Delicious!! I used a whole can of light coconut milk and I made rice noodles. They were not added to the soup but added to each bowl before the bubbly soup was poured in. The broth was very flavorful!! Read More

I travel, and had something very similar in Kowloon. This was gorgeous and as authentic as it gets. I didn't put so much pasta, but that's because I prefer it with less. Lovely. Read More

this was great! I added a little squeeze of lime juice to each plate. I would double the liquids because they got sucked up by the pasta, and I like having the soup at the end of the bowl. Read More

This is a great recipe. I followed the soup base as is and just threw in the veggies I had on hand (tomatoes, carrots, bamboo shoots, button mushrooms, green onion) it turned out amazing! I used the whole can of coconut milk and a whole can of chicken stock. It was the perfect consistency. This is a very flexible recipe, you can definitely make it your own and it will still turn out amazing. The lime to brighten up the dish was key! Read More

Nice flavor. I used scallops instead if chicken and it was good. A little over powering but will cook again. Read More
