Tom Yum (Thai Soup)

I haven't tried this one yet, but plan to in the next week



1.5 litres of stock (vegetable?)
juice of 2 limes
75ml tamarind water (can just dilute a bug spoon of paste in hot water)
75ml Fish sauce
6 stick of lemon grass (squash with knife and then chop)
3 Red chillies
110g Ginger
Lime leaves
75g brown sugar
8 big tomatoes
Prawns (approx 100g per head)


-Throw in everything bar the prawns amd simmer for 20 minutes
-Keep tasting it- if sour add more fish sauce and sugar
- When tomatoes soften, bring to the boil and add prawns for 2 minutes
- Serve with basil sprinkled on top

[Also works with chicken]
