Thai Red Curry Soup (In A Soup Maker)

Thai Red Curry Soup tastes amazing in the soup maker! Similar to my Chicken Tikka Masala Soup from last week this soup is based on a favourite curry dish that can be had as a soup, or made more substantial by adding in some cooked noodles or rice.

I’ve updated this recipe to also show how to make it in the AMAZING new Ninja Blender and Soup Maker!


I’ve tried to keep the recipe list as simple as possible without compromising on the taste. If you don’t have, or can’t get hold of kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass stalk, these can be substituted with the zest of half a lime and half a lemon.

This is another handy recipe to make with any leftover meat from a roast chicken – but you can also just brown up some diced chicken breasts like I did.

Update: I have also tried this recipe in the Ninja Blender and Soup Maker and you can put the chicken direct in the soup maker raw and the program will cook the meat for you (yay!)

There are plenty of Thai Red Curry Pastes available to buy at the supermarket. I used one from Blue Dragon, but you can use which type you like, some might be spicier than others. You can even make your own Thai Curry Paste and get the heat level just how you like it.

Blue Dragon Thai Red Curry Paste

I sautéed the ginger and garlic in a little oil straight in my soup maker. If you don’t have this function you can either do this stage separately in a pan, or just skip this step. Just cook them for a minute and stir them frequently so they don’t stick to the base.

I then switched off the sauté button and immediately added the Thai Red Curry Paste and mixed it in with the ginger and garlic, again, make sure it doesn’t stick to the base of the soup maker. I then added the remaining ingredients and gave everything a good stir.

This is it in Morphy Richards Saute and Soup Maker:

Side Note: If you don’t want to use coconut milk you can substitute it with natural yoghurt but it may lose some of it’s sweet taste it gets from the coconut. You can also add in extra or alternative vegetables such as mangetout, green beans, aubergine etc

If you decide to add noodles to this soup they can be made directly in the soup maker. 

Update: In the Ninja Soup Maker I added the uncooked noodles when the smooth soup program had 6 minutes left.

Hi Michele - I used the latest Ninja - if you are in the UK it's called the Ninja Blender and Soup Maker, if you are in North America it's called the Ninja Foodi Cold and Hot - I've done a review of it here -

Hope that helps!
