  1. I’ve seen similar recipes which require 1/2hr or more of simmering. Is it really better to do it quickly, as shown?

  2. Hi David, thank you for your comment. With Tom Kha Gai you should simmer for 10 minutes, there is no need for it to simmer for 1/2hr. Simmer for 10 minutes until chicken is cooked then leave for 5 minutes.

  3. I love this soup.Thank you very much for this video.Even I guess she forgot to use cherry tomatoes.I think to put them raw into the soup even better.
    Thank you
