Recipe by Baby Kato
We love Thai food, my husband asks for this dish regularly. This is my version of a popular soup, which, I have made very spicy. All the flavors together create an unforgettable treat.

Very tasty soup, I made a couple of changes - left out the sweet chili sauce, soy & mirin and used some Thai coconut sugar and added fresh chopped bird-eye chili to make it extra hot - I like hot food! I also add some bean thread noodles and shredded cabbage. I made this as part of the Aus/NZ Swap #39
