Thai Tom Kha Ghai

I made my first Thai soup, I have been wanting to make this soup for so long. I saw lime leaves so thought why not!
It was actually really easy to make and truly delicious Jasmine finished of the bowl I was taking a picture of in minutes! but what a healthy afternoon snack it made.

  • One can of coconut milk
  • 2 cups of water
  • 8 keffir lime leaves
  • shredded ginger about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • some snap peas
  • a few cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup shrimp
  • one teaspoon of red chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoon shredded lemon grass
  • one teaspoon of Thai garden spice by Urban Accents
  1. add the coconut milk and water and bring to the boil
  2. then add all the other ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes
It is that simple, I think the key is the lime leaves and the lemon grass

What's your favorite soup?
