Tom Kha Gai is a coconut milk based Thai soup that has the delicate infused flavours of galangal, lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. “Tom” means to boil, “Kha” means galangal and “Gai” means chicken.
This soup is my all-time favourite. Whenever I have a dinner party, this is the soup I serve and it never fails to impress. I don’t know why I don’t cook it more often, as it is quick and easy to prepare once all the ingredients are on hand.
