      As he says, this soup is to die for, I ventured into our local asian market and was able to find everything I needed to make this exact, it is amazingly delicious and alot easier than it sounds, if you can find all the ingredients, I suggest you try it, you won't be sorry!

      Yes!!! It's wonderful! I didn't have palm sugar, so used dark brown sugar instead. Oh, and used Japanese green chilies. (Went easy on these and used only 2, but 3 would have been fine.) I had chicken, homemade stock, lime, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, coriander roots, the chilies, coconut milk and lemon grass in the freezer, so this became a clean out the freezer project, too. Thank you for the recipe, Mean Chef. If I made this once a week I wouldn't need to freeze things, would I?
