This popular spicy soup will excite your tastebuds. The combination of lemongrass, shallots, fish sauce, galangal, mushrooms, kaffir lime leaves, lime juice, and red chili peppers gives this clear soup its unique taste. It is generally made with shrimp, but it is also possible to make it with chicken, fish, or mixed seafood. If you are not a fan of spicy food, then you should Thai chicken coconut soup instead. It has the same flavor; however, as the chilies are optional it is not as hot and the coconut milk also helps to reduce the level of spice.
While the curries of Thailand come in a wide range of colors, spices, and taste, one thing that they all share is their coconut milk base. This gives them a creamy textures that pairs nicely with meat (or tofu), vegetables and a side of rice. When choosing a Thai curry, there are three things you should consider. The first is the level of spiciness. The second is the color and the third is the type of protein you want to use. Yellow curry, for example, has a rich texture and special hue due to the use of turmeric. Other ingredients like coriander, cumin, shallots, lemongrass, and galanga are all used in the various types of curries. Other common ingredients include vegetables, potatoes, chicken, or tofu. Some use fewer chilis, so they are not as spicy as the red and green versions. If you are ordering for a child, you should order one of the less spicy varieties.
This popular dish is nothing more than the Thai variation of pan fried rice. Fried rice has it’s origins in China, but it has spread to almost every other Asian country and culture. What makes Thai fried rice unique are the various protein options that are available. You can choose chicken, pork, beef, seafood or tofu. Your Thai chef will combine your protein with eggs, onions, garlic, fish sauce, fresh herbs, tomatoes, or other vegetables in a stir-frying pan or wok. These ingredients are stir-fried and added to Jasmine rice until they blend well. We serve it with cucumber pieces, lime wedges, and other condiments.
