  1. Put the curry paste in a pan with the ginger, the chopped chillies and half the coconut milk. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining coconut milk and the stock and simmer for a further 2 minutes. 
  2. Add the peas, babycorn, mange tout and noodles and cook for 5 minutes, until just tender. Remove from the heat and stir in the spinach. 
  3. Ladle the hot soup into 4 bowls and garnish with the sliced chillies and the chopped peanuts to serve.

Cook's tip:

If you eat fish, you could add raw prawns in with the peas and babycorn, and simmer until cooked through.
