Kaeng Som Pla Tu

Kaeng Som Pla Tu 2

One of my favorite parts about cooking is the fragrance of the food. I grew up eating fresh homegrown produce. I remember how we rarely purchased any ingredients other than fish sauce and occasionally seafood. Fresh herbs were picked in a garden behind the house. They were galangal, lemon grass, Thai ginger, kaffir lime leaves,

Raw papaya is a very popular ingredient in Thailand. It’s not only a part of the famous Thai papaya salad, but it can also be cooked as curry or stew. Raw papaya has an enzyme that helps tenderizing meat so it is often pair up with beef in Asian stew. I love raw papaya in spicy

Diveagar Style Fish Curry

We woke up to an unfamiliar mutest daybreak. The temperature was just right and the purest air was so welcoming. “Are we home in Kerala or Khon Kaen?” we thought as we slowly regained the conscious remembering now that we were in a cozy lodge somewhere by the warm coast of Diveagar. The morning cups of

Simple Thai Fish Laksa (Khanom Jeen)

No matter how hot a bowl of spicy Thai fish laksa is, I always have my way of enjoying and sweltering in the white soft noodle soaked in spicy zippy fish curry, then more and more will be added to my plate. Let’s not think about self-control, portion and weight for a second, this delicious

Mild and Creamy Fish Curry

I discovered frozen pomfret slices in my freezer this morning. I knew if I didn’t do anything with them right then, they might stayed there until rotten away. We bought new grocery, meat and seafood on weekend and most of the time I forget about those which stored in the deep freezer. I thawed the fish

Mackerel in Red Curry Sauce

One of my favourite Thai dishes is fish in red curry sauce. Every bite of it makes me think of my mom and her rustic kitchen. I don’t know where to begin to describe how yummy this dish is. It is very balance and flavourful. The aroma of herbs is wonderful and fresh. The crispy
