Keep the mixture on heat for a few minutes, stirring constantly (don't forget to add a little oil if the mixture is too thick), the Deputy remove from heat.
  4. All that happened in a frying pan, grind in a blender or other way (keep in mind that the Cup of a blender will have to wash, then many times).
  5. The pasta is ready!

The paste should be thick, not to spread and not run off the spoon. If at first you don't succeed, try again, changing the proportions to your taste.

By the way, the soup is always made with pasta. Pasta is prefabricated for quick cooking of soup and long storage. I, for example, open large tin of pasta 1kg. bought in Tae is stored in the fridge for the second year, used only a third ;) . And saw cook pasta and add pepper and galangal directly in preparing the soup without pereyarki. ...

It would be complete nonsense-simulation, as all was replaced. And why the coconut? Is he really from another soup, Thai here is not added. Tomato is also laughter, their Tom Yam kung does not happen. Well, the full paragraph - recommendation to sprinkle at the end with parsley or something. Guys, it's not soup! Even if the soup with mushrooms (common in cafes around the world, for "farang"), this is not Tom Yam kung. And this soup must be burning, sharp, like hydrochloric acid. Use it should be done with the portion of Fig. ...

Shurmur, very sorry that you prescription take it just like that to simply criticize. And indeed it seems that you have little understanding about "cooking" in General, do not know that even the soup is prepared in different hosts in different ways, as well as Tom Yam. Some add coconut milk, and some don't. Even in the cafes and restaurants there are different variants of this dish. If you are in Thailand, go over several places, all learn, and then teach others.
As for the replacement products, are not forced to replace all of the products and of them to do. But if I don't have lemograss, for example, I quite successfully replace a large number of leaves Kaffir that I have growing in a pot on the windowsill. And, for example, replacing the lime for lemon in General is not felt. And so on. ...

Tried the Tom Yam soup in Phuket. It reminded me of the situation with the first test of the land. At first don't like, and then begin to understand the subtle taste. But there is a clarification - if the taste of sushi I'm used 3-4 times, then Tom Yam could not be friends. Its sweet taste seems to be approximate with each new boat. Wobbler to taste this exotic dish I could not get used to ...

Also saw these sets on sale, now they are often in supermarkets to see. But not bought, because I prefer to do my recipe of the original products brought from the "homeland". Nevertheless, in my opinion, the main thing is-Yam - hot and sour soup, and the composition added to the dish products are not so important. Therefore, if these sets have pasta cake mix or bouillon cube Tom yum, they have to conform. ...
