Sipping a bowl of flavorful Thai inspired soup while drafting this post is a real energy booster after a long tiring day. This is an easy yet delicious soup prepared using 2 varieties of sausages, few thai ingredients and coconut milk. Chicken paprika lyoner is also a variety of thin sausage with a spicy taste of paprika. I have used galangal paste and lemongrass powder in this recipe which can be replaced with fresh ingredients. The flavour from lemongrass, galangal and basil leaves gives a refreshing taste to the soup. Instead of chicken powder, fresh chicken or fish stock can be used which also enhances the taste.
If you are a Thai cuisine lover like me, then this simple and flavorful soup will make your day for sure. Here is the recipe....
