Here we provide you with some more delicious recipes of two Cambodian soups: the legendary vegetable soup Samlor Kor Ko and a beautiful Khmer Lemon Grass Soup, called Samlor Machou. These by the way are not dishes we make during our cooking classes.
Those recipes are in our colourful recipe booklet, which you get when taking a course at the Cambodia Cooking Class.

Add the chicken, mixing well and cook for 10 minutes, skimming off any white froth which forms. Place the spring onions, basil lemon juice, chili paste, coriander and lime leaves in a large serving bowl and mix well.
To serve, pour the soup over the onion mixture in the serving bowl, mix well and serve immediately.
