Spicy Chicken Soup With Hints of Lemongrass and Coconut Milk

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Ozlem Altinok

This is a delightful soup ,creamy with coconut milk and fragrant with the elusive flavor of lemongrass.I got hold of the recipe years ago from a thai lady who was offering cooking classes for the expat wives .Even my little one eats this without complaining.

I love this soup, I did make a few changes by adding a bit more fish sauce, red bell pepper and oyster and straw mushrooms.
