This fiery broth is a lovely treat on a summer's evening. Tom Ka paste can be bought from most oriental supermarkets (and probably some others) - it's a mixture of chilli, shallots, galangal, lemongrass and kaffir lime and is great for thai cooking.
I used the largish, medium heat chillies here - 2 made this rather fiery, leaving the seeds in. Obviously you can adjust!
It's really very good, very very healthy and extremely quick and easy!
