Spicy Chicken Coconut Soup

Recipe #: 197  |  Submitted By: unknown  |  Last Modified: 24 Sep 2011

Description: This is a spicy chicken soup with coconut milk used to add depth to the soup. A citrus flavour comes from Kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass. The spicy taste comes from the chilli, so you can adjust the chilli level to suit your own taste. The quantities are correct for a medium hot soup. The dish uses galanga root, which looks similar to ginger root and is sometimes referred to as Thai ginger. Don't be fooled, it is not ginger and you should not substitute it with ginger.
