Thai Recipes


Thailand is now well-known in the West for its delicious food. The country offers many delicious dishes flavored with spices, lemon-grass or coconut. Although known for offering strong flavours, Thai meals always aim to achieve a balance these five fundamental flavours (spicy hot, sweet, sour, salty, and sometimes bitter).

In all honesty, Thailand is home not to just one cuisine - but to several - each region of the country has its own preferred ingredients and style of cooking; for example, lime juice is favored in the Northeast of Thailand, whereas coconut milk and fresh tumeric and common in the South.

As with most Southeast Asian countries, rice forms the building block of much of the Thai diet. Fragrant jasmine rice is native to Thailand, and is used in many dishes, or served plain as an accompaniment.

Here are some common and popular Thai dishes:
  • Green curry - Perhaps the best-known Thai curry outside of the country. Green curry is green in color, flavored with coconut, green chillies, and Thai basil, and contains vegetables as well as chicken, fish, shrimp or other seafood.

    Thai food - Green curry

  • Yellow curry - This is a curry that gets its yellow color from fresh tumeric. As well as tumeric, the curry also contains black mustard seeds, cumin, nutmeg, brown sugar, kaffir lime leaves, lime juice, coconut milk and fish sauce.

  • Red curry - As the name implies, a curry that is red in color. Red curry gains its very hot (spicy) flavour, as well as its color, from copious use of red chillies.

  • Pad Thai - This popular dish is a tasty form of fried rice noodles. The noodles are cooked with fish sauce, sugar, lime or tamarind, peanuts and egg, and then mixed with chicken, tofu or seafood.

  • Pad see ew - This dish consists of noodles with noodles with thiny sliced meat (pork or chicken), stir-fried and flavored with fish sauce.

  • Satay - Satay is grilled meat (usually chicken or pork) that is cooked on skewers and served with cucumber salad and peanut sauce. This dish is originally from Indonesia, but it has become a popular dish in Thailand, especially as a street food.

    Satay

  • Som tam - A popular salad made from grated papaya. There are several regional variations of this dish - the salad may include peanuts, shrimps and palm sugar, or salted fish, eggplant, and long beans, or salted black crab.

  • Tom yam - A hot and sour soup made with shrimp or other seafood, or chicken.

  • Gai pad khing - A Thai favorite, this dish is basically fried chicken with vegetables and sliced ginger.

Product Description:
The 200 recipes in this family-friendly collection deliver a revolution in slow cooking like only America's Test Kitchen can!

Who doesn't like the idea of throwing ingredients into a slow cooker and coming back hours later to a finished meal? Too bad most slow cooker recipes deliver mediocre results you'd rather forget than fix again. A team of ten test cooks at America's Test Kitchen spent a year developing recipes, and what they discovered will change the way you use your slow cooker.

Did you know that onions garlic, and spices should be bloomed in the microwave for five minutes before they go into the slow cooker? This simple step intensifies their flavor and requires no extra work. Did you know that a little soy sauce mixed with tomato paste adds meaty flavors to almost any stew and can often replace the tedious step of browning the meat? And do you know the secret to a moist slow-cooker chicken? Start the bird upside down to protect the delicate white meat from drying out.

Sawadee kha from Thailand,

My name’s Duen. I was born in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) in the Northeast (Isaan) of Thailand, hence the author name Duen Na Korat . I grew up in a very large family, about 30 family members, all living and working as farmers on the same area of land. This is how a lot Thai people traditional lived and the role of Thai women was to do the cooking.

I started cooking at 7 years old and I have been cooking for almost 30 years now. My mom and grandmother taught me to do things for myself at a young age. They also taught me a lot of things about cooking and I didn’t know back then that it would become such a huge part of my life and business in the future.

Now at 35, I have a very popular Thai restaurant and a Thai cooking school here in Krabi, Thailand, I cook for parties and events, and now I have written this Thai cookbook. Cooking is in my soul, I love it. I feel so happy when I cook and I see people enjoy my food.

I have written this Thai cookbook to share my knowledge and what I have learned from my experience with anyone who wants to know and wants to cook Thai food. I write about traditional Thai cooking and use authentic Thai recipes and techniques but you can make these Thai dishes too and it’s easier than you may think.

Delicious
by Greg Mercer says

This is an excellent cook book! The author provides a great introduction and mouth watering recipes. The Chicken Red Curry is delicious but if you were to only choose one recipes out of the whole book you MUST make the Tom Kha Gai soup. It is to die for.

I have a few much longer Thai cookbooks on my kindle but I must say I find myself opening this one up the most.

Product Description:

Featuring a wonderful array of curry dishes to suit every palate.

Slow cookers and curries really are a match made in culinary heaven, because slow cooking spices allows them to slowly release their essential oils and fragrance creating tantalizing and aromatic sauces, while at the same time rendering even the most economical cuts of meat succulent and tender.

These tantalizing recipes use ingredients easily found at a local grocer, without compromising authentic flavor. It's a wonderful internationally-influenced selection of recipes which also includes over 40 recipes for rice, chickpeas, lentils, beans and peas.

Dishes include

  • Spiced Prawn and Pineapple Curry, Bangkok Sour Pork Curry, Kali Dhal
  • Caribbean Curried Beef, Burmese Golden Rice, Butter Chicken
  • Pork Rendang, Sticky Jasmine Rice, Lemon and Date Pickle
  • Filipino Green Papaya Curry, Saag Dhal, Lamb Biryani
  • Creamy Spinach and Tomato Dhal, Jamaican Fresh Peach Chutney

There are also delicious and creative twists on accompaniments along with slow cooker know-how such as preparing various types of food for the slow cooker. Cooks will delight in the combination of the authentic sumptuous dishes as well as the greatly reduced time spent in the kitchen.

Product Description:

The definitive Thai cookbook from a YouTube star!
 
Growing up in Thailand, Pailin Chongchitnant spent her childhood with the kitchen as her playground. From a young age, she would linger by the stove, taking in the sight of snowy white coconut being shredded, the smell of lemongrass-infused soups, and the sound of the pestle pounding against the granite mortar. 
   Years later, as a Cordon Bleu–educated chef in San Francisco, Pailin vividly remembered the culinary experiences of her youth. And so, on YouTube, Hot Thai Kitchen was born. Combining her love of teaching with her devotion to Thai food, Pailin immediately connected with thousands of fans who wanted a friend and educator.
   In this much-anticipated cookbook, Pailin brings her signature warmth and impressive technique to Thai food lovers everywhere. She begins by taking readers on a beautifully photographed trip to Thailand to explore the culinary culture and building blocks central to Thai food. With foolproof and easy-to-follow instructions, Pailin breaks down the key ingredients, flavours, equipment, and techniques necessary to master authentic Thai cooking. Then, she shares her must-make recipes for curries, soups, salads, and stir-fries, including entire chapters on vegetarian and vegan dishes, dips and dipping sauces, and sumptuous Thai desserts. With QR codes to video tutorials placed throughout the book, you’ll be able to connect with Pailin online, too.  
   Both a definitive resource and an extraordinary exploration of Thai cuisine, Hot Thai Kitchen will delight and inspire you in your Thai cooking journey.
