How to make it

  • In a medium heavy saucepan saute the oil, garlic and onion until becoming transparent.
  • Stir in the lemongrass, curry paste, galangal (ginger) and lime leaves and continue stiring for 3-4 minutes..
  • Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil then reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms, then turn it off for 30 minutes to an hour to let the flavors meld a bit and allow the mushrooms to soak in the flavor.
  • Heat the soup back up, add the coconut milk, chicken, mushrooms, peppers, and scallions. Cook for about 5 minutes or just until the chicken is cooked. Add the fish sauce and lime juice.
  • You can either take out the flavor items that you won't eat (galangal, ginger, lime leaves, lemongrass), or leave it in to be take out by those enjoying the soup.
  • Sprinkle in some cilantro and serve! Enjoy.

    You can get dried lemon grass. There's a great website called where you can order things in the US. If you have a fancy grocery store like whole foods, or an asian grocery you'll find the galangal but otherwise, just use the ginger. You need to use the ginger root, not the shoots for the flavor. Feel free to modify it a bit, but I think this will bring back memories for you. :-) William

    questions, questions, questions... Do you think I can get dried lemon grass? Living here is sometimes like a third world country when it comes to grocerys! And the galangal what is that? I have ginger growing in a big pot on my porch, can you use the green shoots for cooking? When I buy ginger, if I don't use it right away I plant it... I even got pineapple growing from the tops of fresh pineapple.
