"I'm the one that submitted this recipe and I just wanted to add a little note: If you can't find lemongrass, most stores carry lemongrass paste. It's not as good as fresh lemongrass, but at least you ..." See morewill get some of the flavor. Also, I've discovered that adding basmati rice that is a little toasted or crispy adds another really great element to this soup. One more thing, my recipe calls for minced lemongrass because we like the texture and crunch of it. However, some people might not, so you can just put the whole stalks in a take them out when ready to eat. Thanks for all the great reviews! EDIT: My recipe calls for 2 teaspoons of curry paste because I used incredibly spicy paste. Lately I am not able to find that particular brand and most red curry pastes on the market are not very spicy. So add to taste and according to how spicy the paste is that you have."
"This Was So GOOD! I Added Chicken Instead Of Shrimp (Let The Chunks Of Chicken Simmer In Chile Base For 30 Min, Then Let Simmer WIth Coconut Milk For 45 More Minutes So The Chicken Would Infuse WIth F..." See morelavor And Be Tender). Also Added Rice Noodles (I Suggest Boiling Them Separatly, Then Adding Them To A Bowl With The Soup Placed On Top- The Noodles Will Suck Up The Broth If You Add The Dried Noodles To Cook In The Soup.) So Good, Could Also Add Bean Sprouts Or Anything Else You Can Think Of!!!"
"Holy smokes, this was AWESOME!!! My boyfriend snarfed it, and I loved it, too. My sister wasn't too hot about the chunks of lemongrass. I liked them, but if they bother you, you can always buy lemo..." See morengrass paste, I suppose. Anyways, this was fast, easy, and total comfort food. Great recipe!"
