Tips

Is it necessary to use a packaged red curry paste?
The Thai red curry paste is the main ingredient in Thai recipes. It is not very difficult to make from scratch at home. All you need is a few ingredients that are fundamental to Thai cuisine. If made with precision, homemade curry paste gives a better taste in dishes and is even healthier than store-bought red curry paste. A dollop of the red curry paste is enough for creating delicious Thai soups, noodles, and curries.
Is the Galangal the same as Ginger?
Though they both belong to the same family of root vegetables, they are a lot different from each other in aroma and flavor. Galangal is most often used in Thai cuisine instead of ginger, and therefore substituting ginger for galangal will make you miss the exact Thai taste in the recipe. Galangal is often available at Asian grocery stores.
What is the difference between Tom Yum and Tom Kha Gai?
Tom Yum soup is a broth-based soup that is sour and spicy. On the other hand, Tom Kha Gai is a rich and creamy soup which contains full-fat coconut milk.
Can we make a vegan version of this soup?
If you are a strict vegan, you can make the soup with few alterations;
Instead of chicken broth, use vegetable broth.
Instead of chicken chunks, use cubed tofu. It will be then “Tom Kha Tofu.”.
Is Tom Kha Gai a healthy soup?
This traditional Thai soup is low in carbohydrates and rich in protein and vitamins. It is a good choice for people who are watching their weight or have diabetes. The soft, creamy soup is also suitable for people who are on a soft diet. Children also love eating this soup.
Can you use the fat-free version of coconut milk:
The soup is characterized for its creamy richness, which comes from the fat present in coconut milk. Using a fat-free version of low-fat fat version of coconut milk will not give the desired results. It is essential to use unsweetened milk for this recipe.
How many calories are there in Tom Kha Gai?

On average, homemade Tom Kha Gai may have up to 300 calories per pound. But here good news, our Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser increases the volume manifolds by aerating the soup. In this way the number of calories per bowl of soup are automatically reduced.
What about the galangal, lemon grass, and lime leaves?
We have just excluded these ingredients just for the sake of convenience. Many people find it difficult to search for these ingredients. However, if they are easily accessible to, you there is no harm in adding them. Even if you don’t add them, the soup will remain bowl-licking good.
