Yum yum. Mouth watering Eh ? I had the same when I first tasted this soup at a Thai Restaurant back in 2010, while I was participating one of my Thai friends’ dinner party. Such a exciting experience to taste food, though I am vegetarian and loved the taste without a doubt so I was so curious to make that at home and here’s I’m gonna share the recipe to enjoy this during the pandemic.
You may need the following stuff to prepare the Tom Yum
Lime juice, 3tbsp
• Veg stock, 400ml
• Coconut milk, 200ml
• Galangal, 3 slices (Not a must if you can’t find it at the local market )
• Lemongrass stalk
• Small red chillies, 2
• Coriander stalks, 4
• Mushrooms, 100g
• Tofu, 120g, firm
• Chilli paste, 1tbsp
• Cherry tomatoes, 3
Got’em all ? Let’s work it out now.
First, Half-fill a pan with water and boil. In another, boil the stock and coconut milk. Add the galangal, lemongrass, chillies and coriander stalks. Cook for 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms, tofu, chilli paste and lime juice; for extra flavour, add soya sauce and sugar to taste. Cook for one minute, then add tomatoes. Simmer while cooking the
noodles in the other pan. Mix in bowls and garnish with coriander leaves.
There’s you go folks. Remember not to watch the TV when you taste this divine dish, sure that will spoil the taste.
Let me know if it was good.
