    My Thai friend made this for me once but in her way. She used coconut milk, no coriander and added lime in the end. She also added enoki mushrooms and squid. It was so friggen good

    I love how she switches from using a soup spoon to a ladle when she tastes the Tom Yum.

    This is KL Malaysia,
    Nigella, I don't know you like Durian or not but I would love to see how Durian porridge is made.
    It is Durian paste +coconut milk +baked green beans +brown sugar
    and pandan leaves for added fragrance.
    Mmmm lovely, I have not been to paradise. BYE !

    Beware of the man who does not partake of soup. There is no more communal meal. Name me another meal that epitomizes convalescence. Show me another dish that is an instant comforter. To turn away soup is to announce yourself to the village as a destroyer.

      Mushrooms are nice raw, they don't lose their earthy flavour

      jaymee ningthemcha you cook them to whatever texture you want. She specifically said it’s a barely cooked fresh dish, plus they continue cooking off the heat.

      It doesn't. It needs longer to actually cook, but then again, Nigella has added raw mushrooms in a dish (recipe is called linguine with lemon, thyme, and mushrooms) in the past.

    Oh Hell NO thai and i don't approve this ..lime should be last thing to add so it wont cook and taste better ..No coriander it will mess up the limon grass and lime leafs aroma 🚫

    • dojomojo27
      dojomojo27 9 months ago

      waleed A she didn’t use lemongrass. People can make their own versions of shit ya know and it still be called the same dish

    Your voice is ambrosia; and cooking as elegant as your diction. I could listen to a monologue of the growth of carpet fibers were you the narrator. (I might just become a good cook yet). Oft I find myself looking for soup and shellfish recipes, here we have them joined, and this certainly sounds appetizing.

      Lee Flesher I think in these series she is trying to portrait a working mother that just needs something easy (without bother to measure and cut perfectly) but also delicious not just frozen pizza. She is all about mKing coocking easy for the modern sorking mother class

    Having battled lemongrass in soups as fibrously inedible, it will behoove you to wrap it in cheesecloth, same with the Kaffir lime leaves. Still imparts the flavor. Galangal is also part of the "Thai Trinity" of flavors. I love this soup. It can be done with chicken, too.

    It looks wonderful, I'll have to make a batch once Pittsburgh gets hit with snow and ice. I don't care much for mushrooms, so I'd probably substitute bok choy.

    Only wonder how it works with the lemongrass and spring onions being cut identically and being left in the soup though only the spring onions are edible

    • L P

      I was just about to say the same thing. Maybe put the lemongrass in cheesecloth, therefore giving off its flavor without having to fish it out of each bite of soup?

    If this was something uploaded onto a modern food channel, 90% of the comments would be snarling at Nigella daring to use bottled stock concentrate and jarred flavor base

      Nigella would probably look at them and say, "Ok...and your point?"

      Nigella was always about affordable everyday quick cooking. 90% of normal people use canned/ jarred sauces and seasonings.
