Thai Sour Curry แกงส้มผักรวม - Episode 116


Thai Sour Curry แกงส้มผักรวม or also commonly called Kaeng Som Goong is a traditional Thai soup. It isn't very spicy like other Thai soups, but it does have the other common trait for most Thai cuisine, it is sour. The tamarind sauce, as well as lime make this soup sour, and it is absolutely delicious. Thai Sour Curry has many different variations, this is one of my favorites. A point to remember when making the simple curry paste following this recipe, you will have some of the simple curry paste left over. But don't throw it out, you can save it and add a spoonful to your stir fry or next Thai dish. For this Thai Sour Curry recipe, I added four tablespoons of the simple curry paste, but you can add more if you like it a stronger.
