We Thais love our tom yum soup. Across the country it's a simple lunchtime or dinner favourite, cooked at home or served in a restaurant. This light and spicy, savoury-sour noodle broth is well named: tom means 'boil', and yum is a sour and spicy salad. Everyone has their favourite recipe; this one is typical of what you might find on a street-food stall – and I like it with prawns.
EFFORTLESS THAI COOKING – SERVES 2
1.Prepare noodles: Boil noodles in a saucepan of boiling
water for 5 mins. When cooked, drain noodles through
a strainer, drop them into cold water, strain again
and set aside.
2.Cook meat: Bring 500ml of water to a boil.
Add the Grab Thai Go tom yum herbs together
with 200g of chicken (or other meat, seafood or veg).
Bring to a boil again, toss in a handful of
mushrooms and simmer till meat and veg are cooked.
3.Add sauce and essentials: Pour in the Grab Thai Go sauce
together with a handful of fresh coriander and a cup of
evaporated milk. Bring back to temperature. Serve Thai-style
with room temperature noodles, or with noodles warmed
through in a microwave. To finish, scatter over the Thai essentials.
