Tom Yum Soup



          This is a Thai style clear soup which has all the flavours - spicy, sweet and sour. It is actually a street food, which is simply yummy and mouth watering. The prawns and mushroom brings out the authentic oriental flavour. Prawns can be substituted with boiled & shredded chicken. 

          You can also add some noodles to make a complete meal. A bowl of this appetizing soup gives me a soul satisfying experience. A great comfort food to lift up your spirits. It is almost like a South Indian rasam. So go ahead and give it a try by following a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it. 
        







  • 1/2 litre chicken stock
  • 5-6 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2 stalks of lemongrass (only the white part to be used)
  • 1" galangal (Thai ginger), sliced
  • 2 green chilies
  • 1 tsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp. red chili powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup mushroom, sliced
  • 1/2 cup prawns / shrimps, cleaned & deveined
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp. coriander leaves to garnish





          Bring the stock to a boil. Then add the kaffir lime leaves, galangal and lemongrass. Simmer on a low flame for 7-8 minutes.
     
          Add rest of the ingredients (except lime juice and coriander leaves). Simmer further for 3-5 minutes. 

          Switch off the flame and drizzle some lime juice. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve as a light meal.
