The combination of lemongrass, ginger, coriander, and other herbs make this Khao Tom (rice soup) deliciously comforting as a Thai-style breakfast on a cold Chiang Mai morning, or anytime you are feeling ill. Thais don't really eat "breakfast only" foods, but if we did this would be on the menu. This version is made with ground pork (moo sap), but Khao Tom can also be made with chicken and fish.

How to Make Khao Tom Moo Sap

Detailed Step-by-step Method:

Step 1

Making this delicious rice soup seems a little complicated at first, but it's actually quite easy to do. Start by making up a pot of steamed white rice, in advance, or save some leftover from a previous meal. Then, peel 2 - 3 red shallots, slice them very thinly and set aside. In the next step, we'll fry these to use as a topping on the finished soup. Peel a section of fresh ginger and cut about 10 very thin slivers. Chop some shallots and garlic very fine, chop the cilantro, and cut the green onion. Slice one Thai hot chili very thinly. Juice enough lime so you have about 2 tablespoons. Cut the lemongrass stalks into 2 or 3 pieces.

Step 11

Boil for about 1 minute. Turn off the heat and taste the soup. The flavor should be a little sour and a little salty. Add more fish sauce if it needs salt, more lime if you want more sour flavor until you get it just right.
