I never handled lemongrass but I’ve always wanted to try Thai dishes. So one day, I finally took the plunged and watched some videos how to use lemongrass and I cooked this super successful Spicy Sotanghon Chicken Soup.
After cooking this super yummy Thai chicken soup, I now have another cuisine I want to try cooking more apart from Korean – Thai! I started stocking up on Thai ingredients such as Tom yum paste, curry paste and more. I’m so excited to cook some more considering how flavorful this Spicy Sotanghon Chicken Soup is!
