Very delicious! I'm sure it's even better with the lime leaves, which I didn't have, but even without it was very good, and it's quite easy to prepare.
I added undon noodles. This is good but does not even hold a candle to "Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai" from this site. The other recipe knocks you socks off ---awsome. This one is just okay---AND I had a hard time finding straw mushroom, look in the canned goods section.
I love this recipe. It's simple but delicious. I used canned straw mushrooms, too. I've never seen them fresh even in well-stocked Asian markets here in Canada. Do try this recipe!!
This was a fantastic recipe! My boyfriend absolutely loved it, and it had so much flavor and was so easy to make, I would definitely recommend it! Canned straw mushrooms seemed to work fine for me, too.
Don't hesitate to make this recipe if you cannot find kaffir lime leaves in your grocery store. I made it without, and the soup was still absolutely amazing! I added some chinese noodles and used water and miso instead of chicken broth, and it was a perfect. I will definitely make this again.
YUM! So easy & quick, and soooo tasty!
Good recipe, I tried it as it was presented. Good! I make this dish too, I use half the lime leaves, be cautious with the lime juice. Straw mushrooms are canned I dont like the slimy texture so I use fresh button mushrooms sliced. I also dont use chicken broth, I use only the stock left from the prawn shells try it. Either way a good dish serve with rice on the side!
