some soup

kitchen tutorial: chicken coconut soup (thom kha kai)
Another favorite Thai recipe from last night is Thom Kha Kai. I usually make this with shitake mushrooms, but had the notion to grab a can of straw mushrooms at the Asian market to use instead.

you’ll need mushrooms, chicken broth, sliced ginger (or galangal), sliced lemon grass, fish sauce, lemon juice, chicken, coconut milk, tamarind concentrate, and chili garlic paste

heat the broth, juice, fish sauce, ginger, and lemon grass in a pot until boiling
add sliced chicken

let soup return to boil, add coconut milk
stir in a spoonful of chili garlic paste, then stir in a couple spoonfuls of tamarind paste

serve hot, garnish with cilantro (which I forgot to buy)

    Oh Bonnie, I can’t guarantee that this is correct ;) Perhaps some day I will consult with my Thai friends and post it right! In the meantime, this should hold us over, no?
