Assorted Thai Table Condiments
Buy ingredients for this recipe!
In Thailand the first two condiments below (Nam pla prik and Prik dong) are likely be on every household's table together with a separate small dish of plain white sugar and a separate small dish of ground chili powder. Spoonfulls of each are added to suit individual taste. We suggest you make a portion of Nam pla prik and Prik dong and keep in a jar (non refrigerated) for serving as a condiment in this manner. These condiments keep very well.
Prik Si-iew wan, kratiem dong and Khing Ki mao are less common and usually served for particular dishes.
Our Thai Condiment Caddy is a nice way to serve these.
Nam pla prik
In Thailand, Nampla Prik is served on the side in a little dish, not in the condiment caddy.
Mix all ingredients together. Serve in a little dish for each diner. Shown above right with our unique Thai stainless spoon.
This Chili/Garlic/Vinegar sauce is similar to the common Chili Garlic Sauce sold in supermarkets.
Pound garlic then chiles in a mortar & pestle. Add remaining ingredients, stir well.
Prik si-iew wan
Put two thirds of a cup of jalapeno peppers in a 1 pint jar, and fill with sweet dark soy sauce.
Peel and slice two thirds of a cup of garlic, place it in the 1 pint jar, add 1 teaspoon of palm sugar, and one teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of MSG (optional but recomended) and topped up with white rice vinegar. We do offer a ready-made kratiem dong.
Khing ki mao
Julienne two thirds of a cup of fresh ginger (into match stick sized pieces). Place in the 1 pint jar. Add half a cup of whiskey (rice whiskey if available). Add 1/2 cup white rice vinegar, and fill up the jar with fish sauce.
