Laksa Soup with Shrimp Balls
Made with our Laksa Paste from Por Kwan Thailand and our delicious home-made shrimp balls. Served over rice noodles, this is a complete meal full of flavor.
Spicy Thai Corn Cakes, 'Todman Khao Phot'
Corn is a staple used widely throughout Thailand, whether it's sold by streetside vendors that cook it on a charcoal grille, added to ice cream (really!) or spooned onto pizza.
Here's an enjoyable fried corn snack, which would most likely be served with a sweet chile sauce for dipping. A nice party snack, or quick lunch. This is a vegetarian recipe.
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.
Khao Mau Tod - Young Rice Fried Banana Fritters
Khao Mau is a very tradtional sweet banana desert that's made in the Northeastern (Isan) region of Thailand, by families who are harvesting new crop rice.
Typically they will use rice that was harvested that day (still wet, and slightly green) but we use regular sticky rice here with good results.
Golden Thai Pastry Cups, 'Kratong Tong'
Kratong Tong is a non-spicy Thai appetizer dish that we enjoyed making as much as we loved eating it. Kids love these snacks, and they're perfect for the holidays. The kratong tong mold, shown below (and available from ImportFood.com) works perfectly to create unique little cups. It took some practice to get the recipe and method down, so enjoy this recipe and rest assured if you follow along it will turn out well.
Thai-Style Fried Mussels, 'Hoi Tod'
Hoi Tod is typically a small dish and it's enjoyed all day long. Mussels are common in Thailand and served in a variety of dishes, often on pizza among the various pizza chains. Here we show our recipe for hoi tod, and scroll lower left to watch our sidewalk chef video filmed in Bangkok. NEW: We offer a large hoi tod pan (flat wok).
We mixed the ingredients together from scratch for each serving, so the ingredients below are to make one hoi tod. You can make a larger batch of the batter if you prefer, but we found it just as easy, with better results, to make a new mix for each hoi tod
Thai Chicken Fried Hat Yai Style, 'Gai Tod Hatyai'
When chicken is fried this way, it comes out dry rather than greasy. The secret is to cook the chicken two times--first at low heat, then again at high heat. This kind of fried chicken is so tasty when served with sweet chilli sauce. The coating is fragrant and delicious, and it's called 'Hat Yai' which is a province in Southern Thailand. If you like fried chicken, give this Thai-style version a try.
