Rice Soup with Chicken (Thai Style)

Rice Soup or Khao Tom in Thai language is a staple in Thailand eaten for breakfast or as a late-night meal. I always wanted to make it but had been waiting for winter season because this soup is packed with flavors I really wanted to enjoy it to the fullest in the cold season. With rice, chicken, peanuts and Thai chilies, this Rice Soup is “Comfort in a bowl”

What I like the most about this soup is that it is prepared with simple ingredients. The flavors from aromatic lemon grass and ginger gives this soup a very distinct and refreshing lemony taste, that I love the most. It’s such a perfect bowl for winter season to keep you warm and helps specially when you’ve got the cold or flu. A bowl of this rice soup is so welcoming and comforting when you’ve had a long day, it refreshes you. 
For this recipe I used Reem ka Steam Rice which came true to it’s description. Fragrant, aromatic long grain rice. Each grain was separate when cooked. These came out just perfect as cooked rice should be.
  
There are different cooking methods when it comes to making this Rice Soup. It’s either made by cooking the rice separately and then adding to soup or by cooking the rice in the Chicken stock. I used the first method and prepared this soup in two steps: (i) Cooking the rice separately (ii) preparing the Soup. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and absolutely love the flavors. I didn’t get a chance to try the authentic Rice soup in Thailand, when I was there last year. I’m definitely having it whenever I’m there next, to taste the authentic flavor. 

Enjoy a bowl of this Rice Soup with chicken (Thai Style) this winter and cozy up!
