Thai Chicken & Potato Soup Recipe ซุปไก่มันฝรั่ง | Thai Recipes


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!

  2. Hi Pailin. I adore your recipes and enjoy watching your videos. Thank you for sharing such a tasty food here. But something passed my mind when you removed the floaties on top of your broth: how can you had such a clear chicken broth? I always got a little bit black floaties, which I thought it must be removed because whenever I didn't do it the soup smell not really good. And when it happened I usualy change the water and re-boiled the chicken, which I'm pretty sure it affected the richness taste of the broth. Could you please give me an advice about that? Is there something wrong with my chicken? Thank you 🙂

  3. The first western country directly contacted with Siam was not France, but Portugal. According to the record at that time we already called them the "Farang". So how can we called Westerner as "Farang" although we had not know them?

    Farang is the word we derive from "Farangi", Persian word for "Franks", a German tribe that became a major political power in Western and Central Europe during the early Middle Ages, and from which France derives its name. We were not take the word directly from France since we had no direct contact with any European countries before the arrival of Portugal, but we had contact with Persian for centuries long before the coming of European. They are the one that told us about the Franks, later we adopted the word but used it in more widen meaning to called any white Christian nations. Not just Thailand but many countries derived this word the same way. See comment of vishu singh below for example.
