  1. Disjoint the chicken. Put the chicken and prawns, with salt and pepper to taste, in a saucepan with the water, the lemongrass and the lime leaves. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer. Grind the ginger, turmeric, garlic and shallots to a paste and fry until the mixture smells cooked. Blend thoroughly with 1⁄2 cup water, add to the chicken and simmer until the chicken is tender and there is a fragrant broth. Remove the chicken and keep the broth aside. Cut the chicken meat into shreds.

Pour the broth over the meat and other ingredients, sprinkle the sliced celery, spring onions and fried onion or garlic flakes on top, then squeeze over lime juice to taste.
