Accessories you need




  • Galangal is similar to Ginger in look and the way that you cook it but it has a different flavour base. It is more of a peppery flavour.
  • As with most Asian cooking there needs to be a balance in flavours so make sure you are tasting the broth there might be a bit of adjusting needed with the lime / fish sauce / sugar balance.
  • I soaked some thai rice noodles and put some in each bowl to make it a little more filling, I also added prawns in with the chicken for a little variety.
