Very Good - authentic to a degree. DO NOT use lime zest instead of the Kaffir leaves they are very important to the flavor and freshness of the soup. I started with Chicken Broth, sauteed onion, lots, red pepper in a garlic ginger paste available at your local Indian store. Used a red curry paste, sauteed with the onions and red pepper, really brings out the flavor. Use an authentic Asian palm sugar melted in water. Use equal amounts of coconut milk and chicken stock. The soup does not need to age, make today, eat today. Ground lemongrass is available in most Asian markets, making the taste more concentrated than using the stalks. Good soup tho!
