SE Asia makes various kinds of noodle soups. On a cold monsoon day, this healthy soup warms you up beautifully.

In SE Asia, there are different kinds of 'noodle soups'. This one is a great comfort food on a cold day, but also light and healthy. Quantities are arbitrary - adjust to own taste.

Add chopped hot chillies or dried chilli flakes to make the soup spicy.
