Place the chilli peppers, garlic, ginger, shallots, turmeric, coriander root and oil in a food processor and pulse to make a fine paste.
Heat a large pan and gently fry the paste for 2 minutes, stirring all the time to prevent it burning.
Add the coconut milk, chicken stock and lemongrass, bring to a boil then add the chicken, fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar and simmer gently for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Add the spinach, noodles and lime juice, cook for 1 more minutes then serve garnished with lime leaves and coriander.
