Chinese Malaysian Basil/Coriander Soup
So I recently came back from Kuala Lumpur where I was visiting my cousins, and while I was there I became addicted to this bright green soup sold at a local food stall. I've searched the internet but can't seem to find any leads. The woman who sold it told me it was coriander soup, but I'm pretty sure that it was actually basil because it tasted like the best pesto I've ever had. It was pureed and didn't have any meat or noticeable spiciness or creaminess. It was hot. Anyone have ideas? I'm thinking of just pureeing fresh basil and coriander together and seeing if that gets anywhere close to it but if anyone knows what this is called or how to make it that would be awesome! It was such a great soup!!
