Inf’s Storm Chicken Soup,
originally uploaded by Teemu Arina. What is better on a frosty winter night other than some spicy chicken soup thai style? This is one kick ass chicken soup I made to wake myself up, I tell you. So if you feel a bit drowsy after the holidays, get your wokpan and prepare yourself for a delicious ride.

Inf’s Storm Chicken Soup

Yield: 4-6 servings
Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
1 litre rich chicken broth
1 decilitre coconut milk

250 grams chicken

1 carrot
1 habanero or 3 thai chili
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 decilitre bamboo shoots
5 leaves of chinese cabbage

2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon yellow thai curry
1 teaspoon chili powder or red thai curry
1 teaspoon cayanne pepper
1 teaspoon crushed green or black pepper

½ teaspoon monosodium glutamate (optional)
½ cup minced parsley

Note:
If you can’t afford to make your own rich chicken broth a canned one is also acceptable but remember, the soup base is the most important one.

Warning:
Handle your habanero chili with care. That evil stuff really has some potent. Use gloves or limit your bathroom trips (really, I know).

  • Mince carrot, habanero chili, garlic and ginger.
  • Chop your chicken into small pieces, not bigger than your finger tips.
  • Heat the oil in a wokpan and add garlic, habanero chili, ginger and chicken.
  • Cook, stirring, over high heat about 2 minutes. Add the bamboo shoots and carrot. Cook briefly, stirring while preparing the next step.
  • Heat the chicken broth, dark soy sauce and coconut milk separately. When it is simmering add to wokpan.
  • Add yellow thai curry, cayanne pepper, red thai curry (or chili powder) and crushed pepper.
  • Let your cooking simmer for 15 minutes. In the middle, add leaves of chinese cabbage.
  • Add monosodium glutamate or some other stuff to thicken your soup if you want. Bring down the heat and add minced parsley for garnish.
  • Serve with fresh bread and citron flavoured sparkling water on ice, preferably just after escaping the snow storm. Finish with sake.
  • Start being productive.
