Tom Kha Gai is a well known thai dish with a consistency between soup and curry. It`s often served with thai style cucumber salad – my favorite salad 🙂 The cucumber salad is super fast to make and the Tom Kha Gai doesn´t take much time neither.

Ingredients for the cucumber salad:

– 1 cucumber, pealed and chopped

– 1 red onion, chopped

– some fresh or dried chili

– 1/2 teasp. chili-garlic-paste

– 3 tbsp. rice vinegar

– 3 tbsp. water

1. Put the cucumber into a bowl and add the seasonings –  that`s it!

Ingredients for the Tom Kha Gai:

– 250 g boneless chicken, cut into smal pieces

– 20 canned straw mushrooms

– 1 1/2 cups coconut milk

– 1 stalk lemongrass, cut into 3 cm pieces

– 1 cup water

– 5 kaffir lime leaves

– 5 slices ginger

– some sliced chili

– 3 tbsp. fish sauce

– 1 bunch cilantro, chopped

1. Bring the water with the kaffir lime leaves, chili, ginger and lemongrass to boil.

2. Add the chicken and the mushrooms and cook for a few mins until the chicken is done.

3. Add the left ingredients and turn off the heat.

Enjoy your meal! It`s best with some rice; I topped it with freshly roasted cashews.
