Extra Spicy Clear Soup Thai Tomyam Prawn Recipe

The taste of this clear soup Thai tomyam is almost the same as the common red coloured one. Red soup tomyam has chilli paste or chilli powder added but for this type of tomyam, only cili padi (bird eye chilli) are used. Somehow, I prefer the clear soup tomyam. It might not look as good as the red soup tomyam but the taste is simply delicious. My eldest son loves tomyam and this Clear Soup Thai Tomyam is his favourite!
I added in super spicy red cili padi (birdeye chilli) to give the soup EXTRA KICK! lol

Ingredients
Prawns, 5 Medium size
Lemongrass, 2 pcs, smashed
Onion, 1 pc, cut into four
Daun Sup (celery), 3 stalks
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into four
Nampla (Thai Fish Sauce), 2 teaspoons
Water, 4 bowls
Lime juice from 3 limes
Tamarind paste, add water
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste
Kaffir Lime Leaves, 5 pcs
Red Cili Padi (Bird Eye chilli), 5 pcs

Pour water into pot and bring to a boil. Add serai (lemongrass), onions and nampla. Boil for a short while. Add tomato, tamarind water, salt, sugar, red cili padi, nampla and kaffir lime leaves. Put in the celery (daun sup), prawn and lime juice. Boil for a short while. Serve with steamed rice while stil hot.

Frankly speaking, I've never tried cooking tomyam this way. Perhaps it's about time I give it a go. Thank you for sharing.

Hi, that looks nice. I tried a somewhat similar recipe but with something extra inside - galangial (lengkuas).
