Tom Ka Gai (Spicy Chicken Soup W/ Coconut Milk)
40 mins (prep 15, cooking 25)
23 ingredients

I tried many ways of making this delicious coconut / lemongrass soup, but in the end, I had two versions which I really liked and this was the favorite of the two. I grow most of the ingredients fresh in my yard which definitely adds to the great flavor. Most Thai markets also have these ingredients fresh too. Frozen Lemon Grass, kaffir lime leaves and galangal ginger taste good too if fresh cannot be found. I'd use frozen over freeze dried anytime. Also the ground lemon grass that comes in a tube in some grocery stores is not recommended for this recipe.
