This dish was a regular in our household growing up, particularly because it was my brother Eddy’s favourite! It’s a very comforting soup that may not sound particularly Thai, but my theory is that it started out as Thai people’s attempt to make a Western-style dish using ingredients that are available to us, and because it’s so simple and delicious, it became a regular in many families in Thailand!
