Red chilli ½ pieces
Galangal 10 g
4 red cherry tomatoes
Lemon grass ½ pieces
Kaffir lime leaves 3 g
Fresh champignons 4 pieces
Tom Yam pepper paste 1 tsp
Fish sauce 2 tablespoons
Lime ½ pieces
Tiger prawns 5 pieces
Chicken bouillon 300 ml
Sea salt to taste
Cane sugar 1 tsp
Coconut milk 360 ml
Cilantro 3 g
Vegetable oil 1 tablespoon
- Galangal chop coarsely, lemongrass – thin.
- Chili chopped along with the seeds.
- Mushrooms cut into four parts.
- Tear off the leaves from the cilantro.
- Peel the shrimps, black stripes on the back and leave the tails for beauty.
- Coconut milk mix well in a jar.
- In warmed up oil in a heat-resistant saucepan, throw galangal, lemongrass, chili, lime leaves and pour the broth.
- Let it boil for a few minutes and add coconut milk (it is better to take canned from the can, it is thicker).
- When the soup starts to boil again, add the champignons and tom yam paste.
- Cooking better on the biggest fire, do not hesitate.
- Then squeeze half the lime in there, add the shrimp and 2 tablespoons of fish sauce, add salt, if necessary, and throw a few dashes of cane sugar.
- Pour into plates, garnish with cilantro and serve with steamed rice.
- Fish sauce (in Moscow, cooks call it “three stations” because of the acrid smell). * If you do not find tom yam paste, then you can substitute red curry paste. This dish can be cooked on a wok (deep frying pan). This is the most classic recipe for everyone’s favorite soup, which does not even need to Russify. The main thing here – to find all the right ingredients, and prepare them very quickly.
