This recipe is dedicated to all the children, past, present and future who were affected by the earthquake and Tsunami of 2004. This main soup bowl is a fusion of Asian tastes from several of the 11 countries in the Indian Ocean which the Tsunami reached. From Indonesia this soup contains hot, spicy & lemon flavors, from Sri Lanka/Ceylon coconut & ginger flavors, from Thailand shrimp & chicken, from Malaysia rice noodles and from Singapore the curry taste. This is a very visually appealing bowl of soup, so get your digital camera ready and snap a few.
