"Tom Kha Soup is one of the dishes I miss the most from my home country Thailand. Make sure to add classic Thai herbs like galangal, lemongrass and lime to give your Tom Kha Soup a rich aromatic and citrusy flavor. Although these herbs are not easy to get in Western countries, this recipe is definitely worth a visit to an Asian supermarket near you! If you prefer to try my Tom Kha Soup in restaurant quality at home, you can order it via getvoila."
