Tom Yam (Yum) Noodles recipe

Need: (serves 4)

Instant Tom Yum Paste (see pic below)
Fresh red chilli X 2 (sliced)
Garlic, onion
Chicken broth (How to make it?? -note below)
150gms Glass noodles

Bunch of coriander

This needs tasting expertise, you've to taste as you go!! :0)

Ok, for 4 people, we need about 12 cups of chicken broth, or about 2 L. Bring it to a boil in a pot, and add chilli, garlic, onion.
After 1 minute, add in 3 tbsp of instant tom yum. Taste. If it's too diluted, add tom yum paste, if not spicy enough, add more fresh chilli.

When you're satisfied with the taste, add in the glass noodles. Please note that the glass noodles will soak up a lot of the broth, and the noodles cook fast. So, about 1-2 minutes should be sufficient.
Serve immediately and garnish with coriander.

Note: Chicken broth
The easy way using slowpot - Put 3 drumsticks and add water 4cm above chicken. Put on low for 6 hrs, high for 4. Shred chicken later and put in with noodles.

Note2: Try this with vermicelli and glass noodles together!! Wow!

Picture on right is the instant tom yam, on the left is sambal that can make your noodles even more spicier. Sambal is Not to be added to the soup, so, serve separately, for eg, in the centerpiece bowl.
