Thai coconut curry soup


The more Thai dishes I find, the more I realize how little I know of their cuisine. This is another great find that tastes authentic (someone else”s words, not mine, although I do agree) and is easy to prepare.

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

One of the reasons I enjoy this soup is because of the spice. If you prefer a soup that is milder, use only 1/2 a Thai chile or use a serrano chile. Thai chiles may be small but they do pack a lot of heat!
When using lemon grass, be sure to bruise it before using. Give it a good hammering with the back of your knife or the bottom of a pan. This allows the lemon grass to release its juices and aroma. 
I went ahead and added the juice of all 3 limes. The original recipe had bean sprouts which you can add as well. I seasoned with 1 tbsp of soy sauce, but taste yours and adjust accordingly. 
Whenever I use rice noodles, I find that it cooks for awhile when cooking it in boiling water, but does not cook enough when simply rehydrating in hot water. Knowing this beforehand, I rehydrated the noodles in hot water for 20 minutes before adding it to the broth.

In my opinion, this recipe was enough to serve 8 portions! The soup smelled so great it made my mouth water. The broth was creamy but spicy and had a great curry flavor. The crunch of the snow peas with the tender chicken and noodles was a perfect combination. Now I’m glad I made a large portion so I have this for tomorrow’s lunch as well!
