That Thai Inspired "Sursur" Chicken Soup Dinner - Done
Forget cats & dogs, it's been raining elephants here! Don't get me wrong... I love the monsoons
But that flu I had last weekend, has left me feeling a bit cold & in the need for something nasal/sinus clearing♀️ You know one of those slurpy, soupy dishes that is hot in both temperature & flavour? It's been one of those days today
I made a super fine paste out of fresh lemongrass bulbs, fresh galangal, fresh turmeric root, Thai bird's eye chillies, salt & fresh coriander
I tempered a mix of chilli oil & butter with garlic & added in the paste. Once the rawness left & the oil oozed from the sides of the cooked paste, I added in strips of chicken, fresh crushed kafir lime leaves, fish sauce, soya sauce & water
Once cooked, I added in mushrooms, assorted bell peppers, fresh coriander, coconut milk & simmered till done
It was one of those wonderfully balanced soups that are flavourful but the chilli hit makes your nose run & make that "sursur" noise You know the kind? Right?
