Thai Baked Shrimp with Glass Noodles
This Baked Shrimp with Glass Noodles recipe is a slightly modified version of the well known Thai recipe, Kung Op Wun Sen. Traditionally, the shrimps or prawns in Baked Shrimp with Glass Noodles are cooked whole without removing the shell but you can remove the shells if you prefer, perhaps reserving one or two unshelled shrimps to place on top. This addition is of course entirely optional.
Massaman Chicken Curry (Geng Mussaman)
Massaman curry (Thai: แกงมัสมั่น; kaeng matsaman or gaeng masaman) is a southern Thai dish that is Muslim in origin. It is most commonly made with beef, but can also be made with duck, pork, chicken, or tofu.
Thai pork satay - Moo Satay
''Moo Satay'' is one of the most famous street foods in Thailand. This appetizer can be found almost everywhere from street venders to restaurants. The 2 common dipping sauces are matsaman dipping sauce or nam jim arjad accompanied with toasted bread. This appetizer is not common to make at home since it can be easily bought at a low price. However, people will make this dish at home for some occasions such as for bringing to a temple. It is easy to make and can be a fun activity for a family or a group of friends, threading slivers of pork on skewers.
Thai rice steamed with chicken- Khao Man Gai
Khao Man Gai can be found anywhere in Thailand especially in it's capital city of Bangkok. You can find it prepared and cooked and eaten at the ends of seemingly vacant alley ways to the food courts of the poshest malls and major department stores in Bangkok. You can get this dish like 25-30 baht from many street vendors. I know what you might be saying. The words yummy tasty foods and food courts do not go hand in hand. But believe me, in Bangkok food courts are great places to sample some truly yummy Thai cuisine. Khao Man Gai is not exactly the national food of Thailand. The proof is in the legions of loyal customers/fans who are always eating at their favorite Khao Man Gai spots over and over again.
Spring rolls are a very popular appetizer, you can find them all around Asia. They are slightly different in each country. Thai spring rolls sometimes add ground pork, Chinese egg rolls have bamboo shoots in them, while the Vietnamese have fresh spring rolls. They're kind of addictive, when you start to eat them it's hard to stop. Your friends will ask you to make them again and again. A great appetizer for lunch or dinner, you can find them in fine dining establishments all around Thailand. Sometimes you can find at the street venders in the city, but rarely up country or in small villages.
Spicy Shrimp Pate and Fried Macheral Fish
I wonder how to create name in English for this menu. Such a long name, right? Thai name is "Num Prik KaPi/ Cha-Om Khai and Pla Tu Tod". They come in a set and serve together with steam white rice. Sometime also serve together with fresh vegetable or quick boiled vegetable. Fried Salted Mackerel Fish = Pla Tu Tod, Fried Acacia Omelet = Cha-Om Khai, Spicy shrimp paste Sauce = Num Prik Kapi. This menu is very popular for local people and I believe lots of people love to eat "Num Prik Kapi". The pungent chilli/shrimp dipping sauce may take a little getting used to for Western palates. Make sure you have a very good shrimp paste (gkabpi) for this recipe.
Thai fish cakes (Tod Man Pla)
Thai Fish Cakes or Tod Man Pla to give them their Thai name, are eaten as a snack food, or as a side dish to a larger meal, all over Thailand. Alone, they are tasty, not too fishy in flavour, with strong hints of coriander. However, the flavour is considerably enhanced when eaten with a sweet chilli dip, and this will always be offered as an accompaniment, even if purchased from a street vendor.
