Hubby was craving for Tom Yum soup, and he told me that he planned to go tapau after he finished with his workout. I told him just to come home straight from the gym as I’m going to make him a Tom Yum soup. Here’s the recipe which I modified a bit (sebab tidak banyak raw materials yang ada dalam dapur). You can get the original recipe here.
Chicken Tom Yum Soup
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
8 oz chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
4-5 kaffir lime leaves
2-3 pieces galangal, slices (I couldn’t find galangal in my kitchen, so I substitute it with ginger)
4 Tablespoons Thai fish sauce
3 cups water
1 stalk lemon grass, cut into thick slices
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Red Chilli, chopped
3 Pieces Thai Chilli Padi, sliced
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 big onion, cut into quarters
1/4 Piece of Chicken Stock Cube
2 Tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 Carrot (Optional)
1/8 Cabbage (Optional)
