    DELICIOUS!!


    I have never had this before, and had no idea what to expect when someone suggested making it... have made it twice at home since then - it is soooo good!!! I didn't have the lime leaves or galangal the first time, so used ginger instead and squeezed some lemon juice in to the soup when I served it. When I tried it the next time, I used both the leaves and galangal, but couldn't honestly notice a big enough difference to worry about having them (vs just using ginger, which is more widely available where I live). I added prawns in with the chicken and mushrooms too. An absolute winning dish - thank you!!

    This was good - I used a little less coconut cream and topped up with water and small amount of chicken stock concentrate. I also added capsicum (red) and green beans, subbed galangal with ginger and added a bit more lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. Thanks for this recipe.

    Submitted by sophiabrown on 24. April 2016 - 19:30.

    First time I've made and eaten a coconut based Thai soup and it was amaaazing! I served this with thick rice noodles, added extra water, lemon juice, fish sauce and sugar, and cooked it for an extra 15 mins as I used half defrosted chicken. I added 100gm bamboo shoots too. So so so delicious!! Great recipe Tanya!!

    Submitted by 85sarahc on 17. April 2016 - 18:18.

    Just made this and it was so delicious! I left out the sugar, capsicum (because I am eating low carb high fat) and mushrooms (just don't like them). I put prawns and broccolini in the steaming basket (did not use chicken) for about 7mins. I served over cauliflower rice. So good. Keeping this recipe!! Thank you tmrc_emoticons.)

    Made this two nights in a row.

    Couldn't find Galangal so used semi dried ginger instead.

    Also used les chicken then recommended but added frozen prawns.

    I used 1 can each of Coconut cream and milk.

    Great flavours and easy to prepare.

    Cheers

    Delicious and authentic. I used additional fish sauce and lime juice to balance the flavours. I also served it with bean sprouts and brown rice. Next time I will ise coconut milk instead of cream.

    This is as good as any I've had from a restaurant. I added some bamboo shoots and sugar snap peas to bulk it up. I also used lime instead of lemon as I prefer the flavour. Really quick and easy.
