Hi everyone and welcome back. In my last post I mentioned that sen mee (thin rice vermicelli noodle) can be used in a soup, as a stir fry, and in salad. This time I will show you how to use sen mee to create the famous Thai stir fried noodles dish, Pad see ew. According to Wikipedia pad see ew, sometime spelt Phat si-io, is a Chinese-influenced stir fried noodle dish that is commonly eaten in Thailand and is also popular in Thai restaurants around the world. The name of the dish translates to “fried (with) soy sauce” and it is very similar to the char kway teow of Singapore and Malaysia.
At this difficult time for so many people around the world I may be unable to help much, but if you need help with Thai food recipes or Thai food you can make from the ingredients you have then feel free to contact me. I will try my best to get back to you with some ideas. Good luck to everyone and stay safe.
The recipe I am about to share is called ‘Yum sen mee plara’ also known as thin rice noodles salad with anchovies sauce. I have mentioned before that plarah, or anchovies sauce, has been a key condiment in Isaan food for a long time.
I think many of you may search for recipes for finger food to share among friends and family. This may be for morning or afternoon tea, for a party in the backyard or Christmas pot luck party. Here is a food I like to bring and people seem to really enjoy. The dish is a little twist on a classic Thai dish, red curry. So please let me share with you my Thai red curry sausage rolls. Sausage rolls are a favourite party food, and adding red curry paste gives it a slight kick. I’m sure your guests and whoever you cook this for will really enjoy these special sausage rolls.
Nam phrik (Thai: นํ้าพริก, pronounced [nám pʰrík]) is a spicy chili sauce/relish in Thai cuisine. For some households Nam phrik must be in almost every meal. Most of the time, nam phrik is eaten with a boiled vegetables selection, fried fish, plus a plate of rice. A Nam phrik dish is a low fat option and with the vegetables on the side this dish can be considered a healthy dish.
There is a Thai song in which a male singer asks a female singer “what did you eat that makes you this beautiful?” The female singer then replied “I ate nam phrik, which is why I am beautiful. My family is not wealthy and we eat Nam phrik every day.” This shows that Nam phrik is easy to make and doesn’t cost much at all. Today I am going to share with you a nam phrik name “Nam phrik ta deang”, meaning “red eyes chilli relish” Let’s get started.
I went home to visit my family in Thailand in September this year. It’s always an astonishing moment for me to visit my motherland, particularly this time as I spent many days at my hometown of Kaset Sombun, Chaiyaphum. Please let me share some of this special trip with you.
