Authentic Thai food you can make at home
One of the best things about traveling is discovering new dishes and tastes. But if you do not have the time or money to travel, you can still enjoy these three exciting and well-known dishes from Thailand, home in Denmark.
Pad Thai is one of the most popular Thai dishes around the world. It is made with rice noodles, fried in a wok pan with eggs, tofu, greens, chicken or shrimp and seasoned with 'tamarind paste' and fish sauce. Pad Thai can be served as streetfood or as a main course and is usually topped with crushed peanuts and lime in both.
Tom yum goong
Tom Yum Goong is a soup made with shrimp, mushrooms and herbs such as lemongrass, galanga root, kaffir leaves and fish sauce. This soup gets its sour taste from kaffir lime leaves used in many Thai dishes.
The tasty soup is easy to adjust up and down in ingredients, as it can have quite strong flavors - but that should not deter you from trying this fantastic soup.
Panang Gai is a dish that originates from central Thailand and is most often served with rice and chicken. It can also be made with other forms of protein; tofu, shrimp or pork.
The curry has a red color because it is made with red chili, which also gives the strong spicy taste. This dish is better known for the milder variant with creamy sauce made on coconut milk. You will also find nuts in the dish, vegetables like peppers and carrots plus the more traditional Thai spices like lemongrass and lime leaves.
