Knorr Buillon Cubes
Thai: ????? (kha-nore)
Bullion/Soup stock cubes are essentially a fast trick to replace chicken or pork broth in a soup or curry. Knorr brand makes some which are available in Thailand as well as Asian food stores in the West which have flavor more suitable to Thai food. There are even ‘tom yum’ flavors! The ’shitake mushroom’ flavor works well for a vegetarian substitute for chicken or pork broth. These cubes are very flavorful, so only 1/4 or 1/2 cube is enough for a soup. They’re also very salty, so be careful.
