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,

Noodle with Prawns and Chili Flakes

Prawn noodle with chili flakes 1

I love the flavor of Thai style chili flakes. It’s smoky and fiery hot. We use it in our cooking and as condiment. To make Thai chili flakes, we have to roast dried red chilies in a hot pan until they turn slightly dark. The process is excruciating because the scent of the chilies spread

Tofu with Crab

Seafood with immitation crab 1

It’s funny I think I’m kind of mean to my kid sometimes. Yaseen is scared of crab. He is not a fan of any kind of shellfish either. But he loves tofu you see. So it’s so wicked of me to combine these two ingredients together. I love how tofu is so nutritious, but it

Satay Fish Cakes with Thai Papaya and Carrot Salad

Fish Cake and Papaya Salad 2

I miss street food in Thailand so much I can’t even begin to explain it. After school, strolling around the streets and eat on the side of the road was nothing less than a lifestyle. I loved meatballs on skewers which were drenched in sticky sweet and spicy sauce, delightful mini crepes filled with coconuts
