Last time when I posted the braised beef recipe a few friends that said they don’t eat beef. In this blog post let’s do something similar, but use chicken instead.
I adapted the braised chicken recipe I want to share with you today from the recipe for braised pork leg or ‘kow kha moo’, which is a popular rice dish in Thailand. The original recipe was from Chinese migrants and again, like other dishes, over time the recipe has been adapted to suit Thai preferences. Braised chicken is perfect when served with rice and chilli garlic sauce. This time however I used chilli garlic from the jar, which is just perfect as well.
This post shows you how to create the classic Thai dish of tom yum. In this dish you will find herbs such as lemongrass and kaffir lime ganlagal. There are two varieties of Tom yum, the creamy and the clear, with the clear version featured below. Spicy and oozing heat, this soup is the perfect winter warmer for those who live in cooler climates.
