I love cooking the produce harvested from my own garden; it just creates a double happiness. As soon as I saw lettuce, coriander and mints in my garden, one dish that suddenly came up in my head was ‘Meing pla pao’ which is grilled fish wrap in salad and peanut dipping sauce. Here is a picture of the dish I cooked and ate with my family back in Thailand many years ago.
I am unsure how many times I have shared Thai street food recipes with you, but I am sure I haven’t yet shared this popular savoury appetizer named ‘Sakoo Sai Moo’.
Sakoo Sai Moo is a steamed tapioca ball filled with seasoned minced pork, sweet pickled radish and peanuts. It is served with green lettuce, coriander, fresh chilli and topped with fried garlic. The dish is a popular snack in Thailand and found at street stalls and in markets.
Traditionally this dish is made with sago starch (hence the name sakoo, which is Thai for sago), but these days tapioca is more commonly used as a substitute.
The dish is a perfect food for a family gathering. Everyone can help prepare it or it can make ahead of time, which makes this dish ideal for serving at a party.
Among the good things about living in Thailand is finding food on almost any street corner at any time of the day or night. The food is not only delicious, it is also plentiful and cheap. I think we are spoilt in having such easy access to Thai food in Thailand, but living abroad does not stop me from having delicious street food. Here is one of my favorite street food dishes that I want to share with you this time. The dish is grilled pork skewers with sticky rice (ข้าวเหนียวหมูปิ้ง), and it is one of my all time favourites. I make this dish quite often at home, but I have to be hornest – I still can’t get it to taste as good as the grilled pork sold in Thailand!
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.
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.
