Thai Chicken and Rice, 'Khao Mun Gai'
Khao Mun is a more "high end" street vendor dish because it's more complicated to make, and requires a fairly sophisticated cart and tools. Khao = rice, Mun = fat. So this is "Fat Rice" or, in other words, rice cooked in chicken fat.
A kind gentleman in Bangkok with a superbly maintained kitchen cart served Khao Mun Gai we loved for many years.
We also fondly recall the Khao Man vendor at Sukhumvit Road 38, who drove a pickup truck every night to the street corner and spent a half-hour setting up his tables and pots. Always served with a bowl of chicken soup, fresh cucumbers and a side dish of a unique sauce as we prepare in this recipe.
Be sure to use yellow bean sauce (do not substitute) as well as cucumber.
Thai Chicken with Hot-Sour-Salty-Sweet Sauce
The simple marinade and cooking method here creats chicken that's slightly dry on the outside, perfectly cooked on the inside & ready for the dipping sauce.
We used a charcoal barbecue with a vented lid (made by PK Grill in Arkansas), which allows us to adjust the temperature. We barbecued with lid closed at a medium/low temperature for about 30 minutes, before transferring to the oven. Our method is slightly different than what is suggested in Food & Wine Magazine, where this appeared. They recommend barbecuing the chicken at high heat for 12 minutes only, before transferring to an oven.
Thai Five-Spice Soup with Rice Chips, 'Kua Chap'
Kua chap is a rich, healthy soup loaded with flavor and nutrition. We often take it camping, and more than once people have come by to mention the wonderful aroma. We also offer an instant kua chap soup from Mama.
