Thai tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง) is probably the most popular soup in Thai cuisine. It’s a soup that’s spiced with chilies, flavored with prawns, and made sour with lime juice. Each bite of Thai tom yum is like a burst of invigorating flavor.
In this video recipe today, we will make our special version combining prawns and chicken. I will goi over the ingredients and show you exactly how to make the best Thai Tom Yum soup ever! Making Thai soups is not extremely complicated, but you just have to remember that you have to cook your food to your exact taste – there’s no precise measuring when it comes to cooking Thai food – it’s really up to you and your tongue. Be sure to taste quite frequently when you cook this soup! It should be slightly salty, spicy to your taste and quite sour.
1.5 liters of water
8 kaffir lime leaves
4 stalks of lemongrass

3 red tomatoes
1/4 kilo of raw shrimp
1/4 kilo of chicken
2 – 3 handfuls of mushrooms
4 – 5 limes

Thai food is all about the way it tastes for yourself. This list of ingredients is just a guide and you should take it and adapt it to your own tastes.
Thai soup should be eaten with a meal that includes a number of other Thai dishes as well as bowls of rice. Instead of scooping the soup into individual bowls for eaters, the Thai way to eat is to just have a single communal bowl of soup and all eaters dip their spoon into the soup to enjoy it together!
