Karl’s Tom Yum Kathi

Adapted from a RasaMalaysia recipe

I have decided to do Thai food for this week’s Sunday dinner. While I have had tom yum soup at Thai restaurants, I have never tried to make it myself. This Thai standard is a hot and sour soup usually made with shrimp—although there are many variations. Tom yam kathi (Thai: ต้มยำกะทิ) is basically Thai tom yum soup with coconut milk added to it.

Karl’s Thai Peanut Sauce

Adapted from a RasaMalaysia recipe

I wanted a Thai peanut sauce for my sate chicken wings, but I did not want a Vietnamese peanut sauce that you would use for Vietnamese summer rolls. Bee seems to have the closest to authentic Thai recipes that I would find (in English). She did not provide more than an ingredients list—which I still had to change—but this was not your usual peanut sauce.

Karl’s Thai Chicken Soup

Jan asked for chicken soup with rice—props to Maurice Sendak—for a weekday dinner, but that seemed too common to me. I decided to make Thai Chicken soup with rice stick. I can make it a bit less spicy than it is made authentically.

Karl’s Pad Thai

Sauce adapted from a The Spruce recipe

Wife Jan is in the habit of seeing and buying sauce packets in the store and coming to me and saying, , “Make this dish!” Once I have made it from a commercial sauce—if the dish is any good—I will try to learn to make the sauce for myself. Pad Thai is one of those dishes.
