Thai Tom Ka Paste

Tom Ka Coconut Milk and Galangal Based Soup

Tom Ka, Tom Kha Kai, or Tom Kha Gai, (literally, chicken galangal soup in the Thai) is a spicy and sour hot soup with coconut milk. It has a very distinct Thai taste of galangal, a ginger-like rhizome. Kha in Thai means "galangal." This version of the soup is made of chicken (kai or gai).

Tom kha was not a soup but a dish until the late 19th century. Chicken or duck was cooked with a generous amount of galangal in a light coconut broth. It was then served as a dipping pleasure with a basic roasted chili jam.

Nowadays too one can make many variations of Tom Ka using this paste.
