A satisfying and warming soup that's easy to prepare. I prefer to use the spicy Thai chilli sauce to add flavour rather than the sweet dipping sauce, but either will work.
Used different ingredients. This didn't seem really Thai-ish to me except for the chilli sauce at the end. So I added a small stalk of lemon grass that I whacked with my rubber mallet to crush it a bit, and a few kaffir lime leaves to the stock while it simmered. I also added a teaspoon full of something called "Hot Spice Powder" which I picked up at our local asian market. The ingredient list is: white pepper, salt, spice; so I'm not really sure what all is in it, but it tasted good in the soup. Will definitely make it again. Oh, and I removed the lemon grass and lime leaves before serving. Thanks for the recipe! - 15 Sep 2008
