Tom Ka Gha soup is a delicious and comforting Thai soup that is sure to warm you up on a cold day. It is a creamy coconut milk-based soup that is packed with flavors of lemongrass, ginger, garlic, and galangal. The soup is usually served with mushrooms, chicken, or tofu and is garnished with cilantro and a lime wedge.
I make this soup often during winter. I’ll be honest my kids have not acquired a taste for it, but my hubby loves it a lot. The soup’s unique flavor comes from the combination of spices and herbs that are used in the recipe. Lemongrass and galangal give the soup its distinct citrus-like flavor, while the ginger and garlic add a subtle spice. The soup is also enriched with the creamy flavor of coconut milk and is often garnished with cilantro and a lime wedge for added flavor.
Tom Ka Gha soup is typically served with jasmine rice or noodles and can be enjoyed either as a main meal or as a starter. The soup is also a great way to get in your daily dose of vegetables, as it can be made with a variety of vegetables such as carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, and tomatoes.
