We’re highlighting a super tropical soup this week called ’Tom Kha Gai’ from the PTJ recipe box. Typical to Thai cooking, this soup is all about speedy cooking. Thai cuisine is a very energy efficient form of cooking. Ingredients are cut super fine to increase their surface area and cooked on short but super hot bursts of energy. So let that be a little thought to keep in mind when you are preparing - what a good excuse to sharpen up your knife skills!
Steaming is a wonderful way to lock in goodness that your food has to offer. It’s also going to ensure that flavour is locked in, given that you don’t overcook your food in the steamer which is often why this method of cookery has had a bad rep in the past. We urge you to try your eggs in the morning steamed with a dash of soy sauce and perhaps some sesame oil drizzled on top. It’s best when the egg is cooked to a perfect medium, where the yolk is firm on the outside and gooey in the middle. So here we have made a simple steaming guide for you to practise with - whether you have a steamer or just a regular saucepan!
