Thai Curry Soup with Noodles and Meat Balls

In our home it is always a battle of bulge. So now a days we eat on the weekdays soup, especially as Hans come home by 9:30 and then I think it is a bit too late to start eating bread and other things which is what we usually eat in the evening .
Plus if one eat soup there is no carb especially if one is trying to loose few kilos which never happens how much i try.
And I miss my carbs so much that I end up making soup with noodles etc... :-)
And one of our friend said coconut milk is much healthier than adding cream. So I had the excuse that it is coconut milk which is healthy :-)

The verdict in my place is that this soup is so delicious that we decided when we are having a party at home we are going to serve this soup.


For the meat balls.
1 fat spring onions finely chopped
20 gm ginger grated
250 gm mince meat ( i used half beef and half kalf)
1 chillie chopped
2 tbsp coriander leaves
1 tsp soy sauce
2 tbsp of oil for frying the balls


1 tbsp oil
3 spring onions finely sliced
3 medium size carrots cut in thing slices
150 gm brocoli florets
2 stick lemon grass ( bruise them and cut in big chunks)
2 Kaffir lime leaves
2 tbsp of red curry paste
1 liter stock ( vegetable or chicken)
400 ml coconut milk ( i used tin)
150 gm any kind of noodles cooked ( you can add more or less according to your liking)
Few sprigs of coriander leaves and few slices of spring onions for adding just before you serve the soup)

Make the meat balls first.

Combine all the ingredients except the oil for the meat balls and make balls size of a golf ball.
Heat in a non stick pan the oil and fry add the meat balls in a medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes till they are done. Remove them from the pan and keep it aside.

Now make the soup.

Coconut milk vs cream - :) Today we had a roasted red pepper and coconut milk soup. It was tasty enought but I couldn't taste the red pepper. And the soup was thin but we felt heavy towards the end.
