Thailand has always been one of my favorite places to visit. There are wonderful people, amazing sights and fantastic food. What more could you ask for?
I wanted to share some simple Thai recipes, as I know most of you love Thai food, but many people think it\’s complicated to prepare. Actually it\’s very easy if you follow a few simple steps. Bottom line, you need to have everything prepared and ready to go before you start and then it\’s just a matter of putting it all into the wok in sequence.
Make sure you are careful with your ingredients, as the flavor is well balanced, so the ingredients are key. If you have any questions about the ingredients, just refer back to the \”Thoughts on Setting up your Kitchen\” post in December 2010. Experiment and have fun.
Here is a very basic Thai stir fry dish, which can be ready in 20 mintues from start to finish. This is my absolute favorite, and it is very easy to make. Warning: it can be really hot, and in Thailand, it can be like napalm! If you find the Thai chilies to be too hot, then you can substitute jalapenos or serranos.
2 finely chopped Thai Chilies
Then quickly add the ginger and the garlic. Just cook it for 30 seconds or so and then
Add the onions and peppers, and cook until they soften slightly and add the sauce that you prepared earlier.
