Rice Worm Soup ( Tum Kao Paick )


My aunt sells this dish from a food stall! It's a soup made from rice worms, and pork bone. I like to add some dried flaked chilli to spice it up a bit, but you can also give it to children without the chilli.

100 gms Pork Bone
4 Garlic Cloves
1 Teaspoon Black Peppercorns
1 Stock Cube
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Sugar
800 ml Water
100 gms Sticky Rice Flour
2 Tablespoons Cassava Starch Flour

1. Clean and chop the pork bone into 4 cm pieces.
2. Put 800 ml water into a saucepan, add the stock cube, salt and sugar and boil.
3. When the water is boiling, pound the garlic with black peppercorn and add to the pan. Add the pork bone pieces and boil gently for 40 minutes.
4. Mix the sticky rice flour and cassava starch together, add just enough water to form a paste and mix it together well.
5. Pinch off small pieces of the flour paste, roll them between the palms of your hands to make worms, and drop them into the boiling soup.
6. Repeat this until all of the flour paste has been used up, then continue simmering the soup slowly for 20-30 more minutes.
7. Serve, garnished with coriander leaves, and lots of fresh grated pepper.

Serve With
Dry Flaked Chilli
Chopped Coriander Leaves
Fried Garlic
