The easiest recipe for soup Tom Kha with shrimps and without

Quite unexpectedly, during the absorption of anotherportions of soup Tom Kha, I decided to write how we cook it here. Of course, we “cook” this loudly, because for us it is mostly semi-finished, but there is also cooking there. And most importantly, our recipe is very simple, and takes a minimum of time. True, Tom Kha is not entirely Thai, but in Russian style, but for me it is even better than the traditional one. In general, I will not torment more, I will tell.

The easiest recipe for soup Tom Kha

Buy in any supermarket Roi Thai sachets with Tom Kha soup. They are of two types: 250 ml and 500 ml. The second, of course, is cheaper. You will also need to buy coconut milk, it is sold everywhere, even in convenience stores 7-11.

Actually, these same Roi Thai bags are alreadythere is ready-made soup, but they are “empty”, without vegetables, shrimp and meat. Tom Kha Guy (with chicken) is most often sold at a cafe, but we usually prefer, or just vegetable, or Tom Kha Kung (with shrimps).

I also want to explain why add coconutmilk, if in Roi Thai it seems to be as it is, the soups are ready. The fact is that the very first Tom Kha, which I tried, left indelible impressions and was remembered as an ideal soup. So there was quite a lot of coconut milk in it, so Tom Kha seems to me to be diluted in some cafes, let alone Roi Thai. Try, a much richer taste is obtained.

This time there were no big packages in Tops Market.and I bought a small 250 ml. Further, it is still easier. Cut vegetables and cook them. What kind of vegetables? Yes, any: carrots, onions, cauliflower, zucchini, some greens, potatoes. In fact, everything that is cooked for the usual Russian vegetable soup and that is in the refrigerator. You can stock onions with carrots, but we are usually lazy, and taste is enough.

Pour into the pan the contents of all 4 packets (3Roi Thai + 1 coconut milk), add vegetables cooked to this (here someone loves them, thicker or thinner), bring to a boil and that's it! Tom Kha soup is ready! You can also leave the boiled chicken or shrimp here. Shrimp, by the way, you can cook right there, they just need to boil for 1-2 minutes.

Tom Kha soup + rice + pepper to taste

Traditionally, all Thai soups are eaten with rice. We do that too. They never felt special love for him, but either in Thailand there is another rice, or something else, but now I want it all the time. In general, rice is needed to seize the sharpness, really helps.

Why do I add pepper? Because in my opinion Roi Thai, diluted with vegetables and coconut milk is not at all spicy, especially if you eat it with rice. But it's all an amateur.

750 ml Roi Thai + 250 ml coconut milk +vegetables = we have enough for 3-4 normal servings. It turns out cheaper than in a cafe and much more satisfying, because in Thai soups there is usually nothing but “water” and shrimps / meat, only a plate of boiled rice saves in addition.

P.S. Yes, I almost forgot, this budget recipe is obtained only in Thailand. In Russia, Roi Thai bags are more expensive. On the other hand, there is no choice, in Thai cafes in Moscow prices are even higher.
