Thai Yellow Curry (with rice noodles)

January is almost over, and despite 90% of the weather remaining cold and miserable in the UK, lately there have been a few days that have given us all a glimpse of summer. By summer, of course, I mean it’s occasionally been 15 degrees celsius. Which, to be fair, is what British summer days largely…
