    Tom yam kung_01
     
    If you ask any foreigners who have ever visited Thailand about their favourite Thai food, their answers, almost without exception, will be tom yam kung.
    Tom yam kung, or spicy shrimp soup, is the number one of the top ten Thai dishes loved by foreigners, according to a recent investigation. And in fact, it is one of the most favourite dishes for Thai people as well. It is simply because it is so delicious for its unique sour and spicy taste that you will certainly need it more and more if you try it just once.

    Thai food generally not only provides a wonderful taste but also includes medicinal properties in its herbal ingredients as well. Tom yam kung is one of the best examples. To make you acquainted with this special Thai dish, this article will introduce you to the recipe for the soup and its herbal properties.
     
    Ingredients :
    • 1 pint of water
    • 10 large shrimps
    • 1 cup of mushrooms
    • 1 stalk of lemon grass chopped
    • 2 kaffir-lime leaves
    • 1 table spoon of chopped coriander leaves
    • 1/2 teaspoon of ground chilli (the amount can be adjusted according to one's preference)
    • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
    • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons of fish sauce

    5. Season with fish sauce, lime juice and ground chilli.
    6. Put the chopped coriander leaves in the pot before serving.
    Top
    To enhance the flavour, sometimes nam phrik phao or roast chilli paste is added to the soup before it is removed from the heat. For foreigners who are not accustomed with its original taste, just add some milk to the soup to make its taste milder and blended well.

    Tips:
    Best served hot with a plate of steamed rice and a dish of omelette.

    For the medicinal properties of tom yam kung, different herbs offer different functions. Their properties are described below:
     
    Lemon grass
