Tom Yum paste is the main spice/ingredients for tom yum soup-famous Thai soup. This goes well with kinds of seafood and fish. This is so healthy and delicious from the combined spices and herbs. The soup made from this is so good and tasty. It’s good for the cold weather. I decided to make my own (MSG-free) since most of the tom yum paste from the stores contains MSG. Making your own is away better, safer and healthier. Though a lot of spices and herbs are needed to make the paste, this can just be done so quickly using the food processor.
3 tablespoon of olive oil/vegetable oil
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of chopped shallots
1 Lime juice
2 tablespoon of fish sauce
3 tablespoon of shrimp paste (I made my own using the dried small shrimps)
but if you use the paste from the store just use 1 tablespoon.
1/4 cup lemongrass (Chopped)
1/4 cup chopped galangal
10 lime leaves
1/4 cup chopped coriander
2-3 fresh red chilies
4-5 dried-deseed-soaked red chilies
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 tablespoon of coconut sugar
- Heat pot in medium heat and add the olive oil.
2. Add the chopped garlic and cook
