Spicy Thai Chicken Wings, 'Peek Gai Nam Daeng'
We noticed this recipe in Saveur Magazine, and it turned out superb. Under the wet spicy red sauce coating is a nice crispy well done chicken wing--so delicious. We followed along almost exactly as the magazine except for the use of our Maxchup brand Thai ketchup rather than regular American ketchup. We also have a recipe for drunken chicken wings
Thai Cashew Chicken, 'Gai Pad Med Mamuang Himaphan'
One of the more popular dishes on the menu in Thai restaurants in America but also Thailand. This recipe is time-consuming but the result is spot-on perfect.
The finest cashews in the world are grown in Thailand, mainly on the island of Phuket. Mamuang himaphan means cashew nut but there is an interesting translation. Himaphan's original meaning refers to the Garden of Eden, and the cashew nut looks like a small mango. The resulting pun can mean "mango of paradise", suggesting culinary heaven. We use regular refined white sugar for simplicity but you may use palm sugarfor a more succulent flavor.
Yentafo takes time to prepare, but it's worth the wait especially if you like Thai/Chinese noodle dishes. We offer a premade yentafo sauce to speed things up, and here we demonstrate how to make authentic yentafo from scratch. Yentafo has a unique flavor and distinctive red color.
We used frozen fish balls and shrimp, but you can use other seafood of your choice. Small pieces of squid are often used. Try egg noodle instead of rice stick, for something different. As with any recipe, this one has changed with the times. Feel free to experiment.
