Make the broth.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium. Cook onion and garlic, stirring often, until softened and golden, about 3 minutes.
Add ginger, turmeric, and pepper. Cook, stirring, just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add coconut milk, honey and 1/4 cup water.
Bring to a simmer; cook until flavors come together, about 5 minutes.
Cool slightly. Blend until smooth. Add fish sauce and salt if needed.
Return to pan. Add other ingredients as desired, raw ingredients first.
Add raw vegetables and simmer gently until barely cooked. Add shrimp and cook until barely not pink.
Add cooked chicken, noodles, Kaffir lime leaves, sliced hot peppers.
