I have a gut feeling that this will not be many people's favorite because a lot of ingredients to chop plus it has a very ethnic strong flavor and heat. In addition this was done by eye balling and tasting so my measurements are most likely off. However the great thing is, besides killing any sickness you may be feeling or revving you up, there is NO CANNED soup stock to make this AND no added sodium. Plus it is gluten-free. This can be made without the coconut milk as I have done it with stellar results. Very spicy though so use a dollop of yogurt.
