Thai Coconut Pudding, 'Khanom Krok'
Kanom Krok is a special coconut pudding that's unique to Thailand, often prepared on the street-side by vendors who make it to order (see our street vendor video below). There are different minor variations, depending on the chef, and it's always prepared in a cast iron kanom krok pan, which we offer.
Usually the pan is placed directly over charcoal in a round clay oven same as our Tao Burner (see photos below), but the pan works fine on a gas range or electric stove-top. We recommend making sure the pan is thoroughly heated but over medium (not high) heat.
Simple Hot Basil Chicken, 'Gai Pad Krapao'
Here's a simple recipe that will surprise you with bold and bright authentic Thai flavor.
Assorted Thai Table Condiments
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.
