The taste of this was very good, but the amount of stock was a bit too much for my liking. If you are looking for soup, this is a great recipe, but for a curry I really found it to be too runny. Next time I'll skip the stock and only use coconut milk. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Bargain Basement May 2013
