Tom Yum Noodle Soup

Obviously, or maybe you still have not discovered that we love Thai food to every bit of its core. Actually, come to think of it, our Malaysian food is not far further far from Thai dishes as well. Whether its Thai cuisine or especially our Malaysian Malay cuisine, we used almost, give and take,  almost the same ingredients (Basil Tomato Soup, Lemongrass Prawn Curry & Mango Pickle). Basically, its spices and herbs (Basil Tandoori, Lemongrass Lamb Kebab & Prompret Ginger) and we Malaysians have picked up the Thai food lingo to fish sauce too (Salted Egg Fish). Maybe the major difference between Thai cuisine (Thai Fried Chicken & Thai Seabass), and Malay cuisine (Mango Salad, Butter Basil Prawns & Lemongrass Prawn Mee) potentially could be some difference in the ingredients. Other than that, I can't really figure out any other (Lemongrass Chicken Kebab & Green Fish Curry). Or maybe, its the cooking technic too (Long Beans Coconut SauceVegetable Green Curry, Grilled Prawns & Sour Fish Soup)? I'm actually guessing, correct me if I am wrong. I am ever willing to learn from any of you. Do not hesitate in parting your food experiences.

Having said that, Malaysians like me don't really struggle with making Thai dishes (Thai Style Fish, Thai Massaman Curry, Thai Green Vegetable Curry, Thai Steamed Fish & Thai Laksa). Aplenty recipes I believe have already been rolled out (Thai Papaya Salad, Thai Eggplant & Tom Yam Chicken), today, its back to Tom Yum Soup (Tomyam Seafood Soup), but as a noodle dish by incorporating different ingredients for a newest version (Tom Yam Soup Vegetarian & Tom Yam Goong). Tom Yam paste is definitely the core essential to this Tom Yum Noodle Soup, one which you can make or buy. I opted for the store bought one to save time, of course if you want to, go ahead and make. All in all, this Tom Yum Noodle Soup (Thai Prawn Spaghetti) as you can see, I bet is waving and calling you to come closer. Nothing should by far hold you back from getting closer (Thai Salmon Noodle Soup & Noodle Thai Sauce), oh, before I forget, the choice to noodles is as per your wish. I thought I might as well use up the balance of the spaghetti, hello everyone. time now to grab your chopsticks and dig into this aromatic, delicious, power lashing, spicy and tangy soup. Yum!

1 1/2 tbsp of ready made tom yam paste
5 garlic - chopped
1 red onion - chopped
1 tomato - sliced thinly
3 to 4 kaffir lime/limau purut leaves - tear into pieces
1/2 tbsp fish sauce
10 medium size prawns - keep aside for now
Some fish balls (optional)
1 liter prawn stock or any other you like
1/4 cabbage - shredded
Cooked spaghetti - follow the instructions on the packet.
2 tbsp oil
Sliced red chillies - for garnishing (optional)
Salt for taste

In heated oil, saute garlic and onion.
Add tomato and tom yam paste.
Stir and cook till mushy.
Pour stock and let it simmer.
Season with fish sauce and salt (taste first) and add lime leaves.
Add prawns in the stock and simmer to cook.
Just for a a minute or two.
Remove prawns,  cool down, discard the heads and shells from prawns.
Then slice into two pieces and remove the veins.
Assemble spaghetti with prawns, fish balls. cabbage and red chillies.
Pour soup over and serve immediately.
