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.

  • 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.
