Instructions
  1. We start with galanga, cut stems and cut the root part into thin slices. Careful, it can be a little tough, that's normal.
  2. By lemongrass remove the two outer leaves and the rest cut into about 2 cm long pieces, the lemongrass can can unfold its amazing fragrance.
  3. bring coconut milk and broth to a boil. Here, the lemongrass and galangal may already be using in the pot. Prepare the peppers by halve them and remove seeds. Also remove the white walls. Cut the chilies into narrow strips and place them directly into the soup.
  4. Boil the coconut milk, add the chicken, Kaffir leaves (like once a break or tear) and add the mushrooms. Let everything simmer 5 to 8 minutes until the meat is cooked.
  5. Rinse off coriander, pat dry and chop coarsely or pluck.
  6. Season to taste with fish sauce and lime juice. In plates or bowls fill and serve sprinkled with the coriander.
