Authentic Tom Yum #recipeoftheweek




Tom yum soup (ต้มยำ) is one of the most popular dishes Singaporeans order at Thai restaurants. There are 2 main variations of this dish - tom yum goong nam sai (ต้มยำกุ้งน้ำใส), prawn in classic clear broth and tom yum goong nam khon (ต้มยำกุ้งน้ำข้น) , the creamy milky version. If you like your tom yum spicier and more flavourful, go for the creamy version with chilli paste.


Fun fact: Tom yum is prepared using nom kream tiam (นมครีมเทียม) - canned evaporated milk
