Tom Yam Noodles

A super-easy recipe for a cold winter's day......

There are no measurement to the ingredients, I just eye-balled 'em.

Fill a deep pan with water and bring to the boil. Add the noodles and boil for 1 minute, until the noodles are soft. Drain well, and transfer the noodles to a serving bowl and set aside.

To make the Tom Yam soup;
Bring water to boil in a pan. Add in tom yam paste, more if you want it spicy.
Add in a couple of whole coriander roots, oyster sauce, malt vinegar, fish sauce and brown sugar. Bring it to boil.
Bung in chicken pieces, fish balls or any type of seafood that's available in your fridge.
You may also add in vegetables; I've added in broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
Add in coconut milk. Reduce the heat and let it simmer gently.
Adjust seasoning, if necessary. Fish out the coriander roots before serving.

To serve, pour the soup over the noodles in serving bowls. Garnish with coriander leaves and fried shallots.
