  • Stir in coconut milk, broth, soy sauce, fish sauce (if using), brown sugar, ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using). Bring to a simmer.

  • If using, add cooked protein and heat through.
  • Divide noodles among serving bowls. Top with curry mixture, protein (if using), and chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.


  1. Adjust the amount of red curry paste and red pepper flakes to your desired spice level.
