Delicious chicken coconut soup.
Good recipe for a happy family.
Simply delicious. Tome Kha Gai is one of my favorite soups to order out and this one delivered spledidly. I did adjust the menu a touch.Firstly I doubled the recipe and added a tablespoon of red curry paste. I added the lemongrass, ginger, and lime leaves during the low boil and then strained them out after 10 minutes. I then added the chicken and mushroom. Instead of pouring the delicious soupy goodness in a bowl I put the green onions, serrano peppers, fish sauce, lime juice, and cilantro in brefore serving. I served Jasmine rice on the side. I also kept my bottle of Sriachi closte at hand. My tastebudes were exstatic.I'm not sure why people thought there was too much of a lime taste. The balance was perfection. It's a favorite in my Paprika app.
Use coconut milk from scratch and add a 1/2 a cup milk, and then cook the milk and and broth with the bones from a rotisserie chicken. Next I put in a good quality curry paste with lemongrass in it already. I put the meat in at the end. My new favorite soup.
