Thai Soup Mama

On Saturday night Mum gave me a lesson in roasting chicken. She has a big old ceramic chicken cooker and it worked a treat. I now have a chicken carcase in the fridge waiting to turn into stock, but after watching JO cook a whole chicken in a thai soupy kinda thing and then serve it on noodles on tv last week I have decided to do something similar. Only problem is I have packed his books and I didn’t take notes of what he threw in the pot with the chicken. I know it had all the good tom kha gai basics but I seem to recollect him getting out some tamarind and using that too… or was that for something else. Does anyone remember? Maybe tamarind might make it a little sour?
