Almost ten years ago I did an internship in different restaurants in a huge hotel complex in Bangkok. I learned to make wonton-leaves with an axe, how to carve carrots into flowers, how to fire wok like a pro – believe me, a western girl behind a fire wok is a proper sight to see for a Thai. In short, it was a great experience that yielded some fantastic memories.
One of my favourite memories has to be the Tom Ka Kai that one of the local chefs would make me every day. Every time he saw me, he whipped up a batch using his secret recipe. I had his soup every day for ten days straight and I still couldn’t get enough.
Tom Ka Kai is a Thai chicken soup with coconut milk and lemongrass. Whenever I taste the combination of sweet coconut and the acidity of citrus it takes me back to Bangkok. I can’t come close to the chef’s Tom Ka Kai but I wanted to do something for Singlemade using its flavor pallet. And so this superfast vegetarian coconut-lime soup with glass-noodles was born. Maybe it’ll create some great memories for you too! 🙂
