Galangal Chicken Soup is a very delicious Thai soup. My family loves Thai food and I have wanted to try this soup for so long. Sometimes I thought it’s difficult to cook but once I cooked it, I think it’s actually very easy.
The beautiful aroma of the galangal and coconut cream, coupled with the mild spiciness from the chilies was awesome. We had this soup poured over spinach pasta and topped with stir fried broccoli…..a very satisfying dinner. We were so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of our lovely dinner…haha.
Here’s my recipe to share. It’s enough for 4-5 people.
800g chicken meat (from 4 whole chicken legs)
1 big piece of galangal (washed and sliced thin)
1 packet coconut cream powder
2 red hot chilies (finely chopped)
1 chicken stock cube
1T fried ginger oil
3T fish sauce
2t brown sugar
1 handful coriander (washed and chopped)
Put 3-4 cups of water into a pot to boil. Add the galangal and chicken bones (if you debone the chicken legs like I did). Let it boil for some time. Ad the coconut cream, chicken, fish sauce, chilies and sugar and let it boil for about 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Adjust according to taste. Add the coriander and turn off the fire. Serve hot with rice, pasta or noodles.
