Quick food: Tom Kha Ka-ish by Majnouna Quick food: Tom Kha Ka-ish by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

Tom Kha Kai, a coconut milk soup with chicken (kai) and galangal (kha), is a specialty of northern Thailand and my absolute favorite Thai dish. I would have it every day while traveling there. I no longer eat chicken, and galangal, while not impossible to find, tends to be expensive. But I always have fresh ginger root in my kitchen, and mushrooms were already part of the dish, and they are an excellent, super healthy meat substitute (also cheaper/more exciting than tofu). So this is a tom kha kai recipe without kha or kai, but that tastes close enough to the original to satisfy me!

If I want to use chicken, I add it in the second step or before?

Love this soup so much! I made it for some friends a while back, and they just couldn't take the taste of the coconut milk, but one of them... every time I see her, she MUST have a pot of this all to herself :lol: Glad to see someone sharing a recipe for it :highfive:

Excuse me but I think that "Kai" means chicken, and "Tom" means soup. But I'm not sure ^^" I love your recipes, they're awesome :D

Haha I have Thai origins but I didn't have the chance to learn it as a child x) But I'm still trying to learn a few words when I'm on holiday in Thailand.

Can I use chicken bullion cubes or other bullion cube stocks? I can use vegetable if I have to, but I was just wondering. Does vegetable taste better or something? Thanks!
