I am SO happy to have found this recipe. The broth tastes exactly like the Tom Kha Kai soup I used to have at my favorite Thai restaurant. I've always wanted to make it, but all the recipes I looked up had crazy ingredients like galangal or lime leaves. I love that this recipe has ingredients that are easy for me to find without sacrificing any of the amazing taste!
I did end up adding about three tablespoons of red curry paste to make it spicy enough, and next time I will definitely just throw the lemongrass in whole and then take it out...I wasn't a fan of the little fibrous pieces. I used chicken instead of shrimp and added water chestnuts. Next time I'm going to make a vegetarian version using this broth with tofu, carrots, broccoli, snap peas, baby corn, water chestnuts and mushrooms!
