Why old post alert? It’s because, I have already shared this recipe on my blog earlier. Somehow that post got deleted and there was no way I could have retrieve it. Never mind!

So what if it got deleted? I will again share the recipe with you guys. Sharing is caring, no? 😄I have to share this with you all because this is absolutely delicious. Make sure you all try this recipe, please. It has always turned out flavorful and delicious for us.

If you have never tasted “Thai Food” then it’s time you should try making it at home. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

The key to cooking any Thai dish lies in perfectly balancing the five key flavours – sour, bitter, salty, sweet and spicy, which takes skills to master. Each Thai dish is therefore never dull, always bringing in the much needed punch to your palate.

The fresh and strong ingredients used in Thai cuisine are what make it very different from other cuisines. I think lemongrass, Thai chillies, galangal, ginger and kaffir lime leaves are the most important ingredients in Thai cooking.”

Thai cuisine used to be a lot spicier than it is today, but over time, the hot elements were reduced and other flavour boosters like lemon grass and galangal were introduced to the cuisine. One also commonly gets to see the use of minced or sliced meat in the dishes. Some of the popular Thai dishes include Thai curries, Som Tam Salad, Tom Yum Soup, Pad Thai noodles, Satay, among others.

I have always used Thai Curry Paste from Sprouts store. Now that I am in India, that brand is not available here. If anyone reading this post knows where (any online site? can I find good Thai Curry Pastes then please do let me know and the brand name too.

I will say that again, do try out this recipe and don’t forget to tag me or just let me know in the below comment section.
