Tom Kha Noodle Soup

I love Thai food! I can eat it anytime, anywhere. It mixes my favorite flavors, Spicy and Sour! Here’s a quick dinner you can fix up without the $$$!


  • 1 – 2 cans coconut milk
  • 2 cans chicken stock
  • 1-2 L of water (to your liking)
  • Galanga
  • lime leaves
  • limes
  • chili peppers
  • chili sauces
  • cilantro
  • onions
  • lemon grass
  • Fish sauce
  • Mung Bean noodles
  • mushrooms
  • Shrimp or Chicken (to your liking)


  • Buy all the ingredients at T&T supermarket! Or if you don’t have one near by, any asian market will do
  • When I say galanga, I mean GALANGA, not ginger! They may look the same, but the taste is completely different
  • For this dish, one of the most important ingredients is the lime leaves, it makes a world of a difference
  • The fish sauce is the “salt” in this dish, Do not be intimidated by this! It smells quite pungent, but don’t be afraid. Add to your preference. I use about 1-2 tablesoons of it
  • I left the quantity of the ingredients pretty vague, it’s really up to your preference in taste. It’s just important that you HAVE these ingredients in this dish
  1. Mix the water, chicken stock, and coconut milk together in a large pot
  2. add galanga, lime leaves, lime juice, chili peppers, lemon grass, onions, chili sauce and fish sauce into the stock
  3. Wait for it to boil and reduce heat to med low, let it simmer for half hour
  4. During the half hour, prepare the mushroom and shrimp (or chicken). In a large pan, cook the mushroom and shrimp (or chicken) with chili and lime juice with salt and pepper to taste
  5. Boil the noodles and drain
  6. When the Tom Kha soup is done, strain all the bits in the soup and keep the stock
  7. Now combine! Garnish as you please and now you have about a week’s worth of Tom Kha soup (will stay fresh if frozen in parts) or dinner for a large family
