Chim chum (Thai: จิ้มจุ่ม, pronounced [t͡ɕîm t͡ɕùm]) is a Southeast Asian street food, popular especially in Thailand. It is traditionally made with chicken or pork and fresh herbs such as galangal, sweet basil, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, cooked in a small clay pot on a charcoal stove. It is often served with nam chim.

An earthenware pot on a tabletop brazier cooks broth with vegetables and herbs. Thai northeastern people call this dish chaeo hon (แจ่วฮ้อน)[1]


In Thai chim means to dip in, and chum means to dunk something into liquid.
