Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the ginger, lemongrass, and curry paste in the heated oil for 1 minute.
  2. Slowly pour the chicken broth over the mixture, stirring continually. Stir in the fish sauce and brown sugar; simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the coconut milk and mushrooms; cook and stir until the mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes. If using chicken, skip to step 5.
  4. Add the shrimp; cook until no longer translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and lime juice; season with salt; garnish with cilantro.
  5. For chicken: add chicken to soup along with mushrooms and poach gently 30-40 minutes until cooked through. Stir in the rice and lime juice; season with salt; garnish with cilantro.
