Tom Yum Hot Pot Recipe

As a belated dinner for my sister, I wanted to try out recreating a Tom Yum Hot Pot recipe. I asked a coworker of mine to send me a recipe to try out, the link can be found here: Tom Yum Hot Pot. And I have to say, for my first time cooking up a Hot Pot recipe…it turned out pretty great ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients for the soup base (Obtained from the link shown above, all rights go to their respected owner)

  • 1/2 large onion, sliced
