2in1 Tom Ka Paste with Creamed Coconut Lobo
Tom Ka is a Thai style curry, usually prepared with chicken and mushrooms. This delightful cream soup harmonized by the flavor of coconut milk, galangal root, kaffir lime leaves and heart of lemongrass. Word “tom” in the soup’s name means “to boil”, while “ka” refers Galangal root and “kai” is a chicken. Despite the most common version (originated around 1890) uses chicken, you can prepare Tom Ka using other proteins. Typically in Thailand, alternative proteins are seafood, as they pair best with the flavour profile of Tom ka. In this case it will be named “Tom ka thaley”, where “taley” mean “sea/seafood”.
Besides chicken and mushrooms, some people also add various vegetables, such as carrot, baby corn, tomatoes etc.
