Cooking Tom Yum soup is not as complex as it may seem. It takes just a few minutes to prepare.
You will need the following ingredients to cook Tom Yum soup for 2 people:
First of all you’ll need chicken stock. This can be made from chicken, but you can use Maggi chicken bouillon cubes as well. Normally you’ll need 2 cubes for 1 liter of water.
Bring the stock to boil.
Meanwhile prepare the first set of vegetables. You need to slice the galangal and lemongrass. Then add them to the boiling stock together with the kaffir lime leaves.
Bring stock back to boil.
After that add mushrooms, then fish sauce and chilli paste.
Lastly, remove the shells from the prawns but leave the tails on and put them into the stock. Press the juice out of the limes and add sliced chilli peppers.
As soon as the prawns turn red, add coriander and serve your Tom Yum soup.
