Instructions

  1. The soup is also known as Kapoon Soup, Laos Red Curry Noodle Soup, Red Curry Noodlesoup, Lao Laksa

  3. Put cold water in a saucepan and add a little salt. Halve the lemongrass lengthways and tap a little with the back of a knife. Cut the chicken into four parts, put the chicken legs and wings completely in the water, the meat should be covered with water. Bring everything to a boil.
  4. Let the chicken simmer for about 40 minutes. Remove the meat and let it cool a little. Save the chicken stock. Detach the meat from the bones with a fork and pick it apart with a fork. Remove the skin, bones and lemongrass.
  5. Degrease the chicken stock by running the stock through a sieve lined with kitchen paper.
  6. For the soup:
  7. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the diced onions until translucent. Add the diced garlic, ginger and galangal and sauté a little while stirring. Add red curry paste, yellow curry paste and chilli pepper, stir and let fry briefly.
  8. Add half a can of coconut milk and stir. Add the finely plucked meat, stir and simmer for 5 minutes. Add instant chicken broth. Add the fish sauce. Add the sugar or palm sugar. Add the rest of the coconut milk. Pour the defatted chicken stock on top. Add the kaffir lime leaves. Add the bamboo shoots, stir and let the soup simmer for another 10 minutes. Season the soup with salt, pepper and possibly chilli oil or hot chilli sauce.
  9. For the soup garnishes:
  10. Pour the rice noodles in a bowl with boiling water to which a little salt has been added. Let the rice noodles soak in the water for 5 - 10 minutes, depending on their thickness, then drain the water. Then rinse the pasta with cold water and drain the water. Pour a splash of sesame oil over the noodles and mix a little to prevent them from sticking together.
  11. Depending on your preference or what is currently available, some of the ingredients for the soup are:
  12. 2 carrots cut into fine strips or roughly grated.
  13. 2 handfuls of pak choi or Chinese cabbage or pointed cabbage cut into thin strips.
  14. 2 handfuls of Asian mushrooms B. Enoki mushrooms or button mushrooms, thinly sliced.
  15. 2 handfuls of bean sprouts.
  16. 2 handfuls of spring or spring onions, cut into rings or slices.

Then scoop the hot soup over with the meat. Garnish the soup with chopped coriander, a lime wedge and a chilli pepper and serve immediately.
  18. You can also serve the soup with boiled eggs (quail eggs), meatballs, mint leaves, dill or Thai basil, chopped banana blossom, etc.
  19. You can put hot chilli sauce, soy sauce, etc. on the table. The soup is eaten with chopsticks and spoons.
