Tom Yum Goong (Thai Prawn Soup with Lemongrass)

Thursday, January 29, 2009


Since having a new site, the event of Indonesian foodie blogger masak bareng yuuk has been having pooling for the monthly theme. And to open the year of 2009 the pooling result is tom yum goong, Thai prawn soup with lemongrass. This soup is one of the main signature dishes of Thai and it has well-blended hot and sour flavor. To make it from scratch really freaks me out...so I just made it using instant seasoning available at Asian stores and added some fresh seasoning.
