Grilled lemongrass chicken ไก่ย่างตะไคร้


It’s been a while since my last post on this blog. However I still do a lot of cooking and keep posting my food on another social network.

I spent a few days looking through the books and decided to cook the first dessert from one of the books. It is called “Khanom Niew”, which is glutenous rice dumplings with shredded coconut and puffed rice in syrup. I chose this sweet because it is easy to cook and it has been a long time since I tried it.

“Goong op woonsen” is pot roasted prawns with glass noodles. I first tried this dish at Chonburi (in Thailand) where my siblings now live. The dish uses prawns, with coastal Chonburi renowned for its fresh seafood. Goong op woonsen is very popular, with many local markets featuring numerous stalls doing a roaring trade as twilight settles over the city. If you go there you must be prepared to wait in often lengthy queues!
