(Masbar) Tom Yum Kung

Masak Bareng Yuk

People, is it tom yum kung or tom yum goong? I need some “pencerahan”. Because when I ask “mbah” Google, both those two names showed up.

This month’s theme for masbar is tom yum kung, one soup dish from Thailand. Nowadays Thai food can be considered as equally famous as other famous Asian cuisine; Chinese and Indian food. When will Indonesian food can be as famous as them?

I was too lazy to google for other recipe so when Deetha said she had one, I immediately copied that…hehe. With some modification as I didn’t have some of the ingredients listed.

So here we go.

Tom Yum Kung

For 2 persons

– 600 ml water
– 100 g shrimps/prawns, shelled, and deveined
– 2 garlic cloves, minced
