Chicken and Galangal Soup Recipe

Chicken and Galangal Soup Recipe

Ingredients :

1 Roasting chicken

10 slices Fresh galangal

400 ml Canned coconut milk

4 Coriander plants with roots

12 Black peppercorns, pounded

2 stems Lemon grass, thinly sliced

4 Fresh green chilies

1 teaspoon Salt or to taste

6 Kaffir lime leaves

1 tablespoon Fish sauce

Lime juice to taste


Method :

Cut the chicken into joints, then chop the joints into bite-size serving pieces. Put chicken and galangal into a saucepan. Set aside half the can of coconut milk for adding later, and dilute the rest with water to make 750 ml thin coconut milk. Add thin milk to the pan with the chicken, add the well-washed and crushed coriander roots, pepper, lemon grass, whole chilies, salt and lime leaves. Bring to the boil over low heat. Simmer, uncovered, until the chicken is tender. Add the thick coconut milk, stirring constantly until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in fish sauce and sufficient lime juice to give a piquant flavor. Serve sprinkled with chopped coriander leaves and with steamed rice served separately.
