Thai Fried Rice

D is a bit hesitant when it comes to eating Rice. Being a Mom, one needs to think of tricks to get your child to eat, right? Though there are options like Tomato Rice, Coconut rice etc, he’s not particularly fond of them. Next option??? Go International 😛 Yesterday was one such day, where I had to find a way to present the leftover Rice in a new way. As I was preparing Thai Style Stuffed Squid, I decided to prepare Thai Fried Rice. I love this recipe because it’s very easy to prepare. In this recipe, I have used…

Thai Prawn Noodle Soup

The rainy season is here. I love sitting in my balcony, watching the plants and trees swaying with happiness, while it rains. Sipping some hot tea takes the pleasure a notch higher. Once you are done with the tea, you start feeling a bit cold. Slowly, you curl up…lethargy creeps in…Now all you want to do is get inside that cosy blanket, neatly folded and placed on the bed. Sounds like a familiar scene ? That’s what happens with me most of the time. But then you can’t get the lethargy grow into you so much that you don’t have…

Ikan Pari Bakar (Malaysian Style Baked Sting Ray)

D is not particularly fond of fish. So, the other day when he started pestering me to buy Sting Ray, I was a bit surprised. As soon as the fish was brought home, he searched and gave me the recipe of Ikan Pari Bakar, from Tasty Kitchen. On reading the recipe, I figured that it was similar to the sti

While sipping my evening tea and admiring my plants, I realised that I haven’t used the lemongrass from my garden yet. The first thought came into mind was Thai soup. Thankfully I had almost all the

Thai Chicken Cakes

Savoury or sweet ? That’s the question I ask D before he heads to school. His choice helps me decide what to make as evening snack. This time he was a bit specific.”Mom, I want something made with chicken.” Later J comes up with another demand. “Make something light for dinner, maybe a salad.” All I

Minced Chicken Lettuce Wraps

The first time I had minced chicken lettuce wraps was during our trip to Thailand a few years back. This was probably the first dish I tried recreating once I was back from the trip. The best thing about this dish is the simplicity in its preparation. The burst of flavours when you take a bite of it

Masamman Curry..Bring home a piece of Thailand.. :-)

Masamman Curry is a typical Southern Thai dish, which can be prepared with any meat or Tofu. Ever since I saw this dish being made in an episode of Masterchef Australia, I decided to make it myself. I don’t know how authentic it tastes. We had it with rice and loved it. I got the recipe from Real Th

Panang Curry…A Thai preparation

As I have mentioned earlier, I love to try out new cuisines. The first time I tasted Thai food was during our Thailand trip a few years back. Their food preparations are very similar to the Kerala style of cooking, using coconut milk, chillies, shallots etc. The difference is that they use Kaffir li
