This aromatic and assertively seasoned soup is one of my favourite Thai dishes. A bit unusual in that it contains no coconut milk, it is nevertheless very much a Thai dish: spicy, zesty, and altogether satisfying.

I prefer to use chicken thigh meat: it is more flavourful than other chicken meat and imparts a heartiness that almost makes this soup a meal in itself.
