Thai Palm Sugar

Thai Palm Sugar
Add to cart16 oz - $4.89 

All natural, pure palm sugar.

In Thai recipes as well as recipes throughout Southeast Asia, palm sugar is used as a natural sweetener. Our palm sugar is the best you can find anywhere, as we import from a premium producer in western Thailand, where the natural sap is collected from cut sugar palms and boiled until a nice sticky sugar remains. The natural sugar is poured directly into little cakes and packaged for easy use (see photos below).  

Comes sealed in a modern package as shown, from Aroy-D. The highest sanitary standard, with beautiful consistency, flavor, aroma and color.

It can be also eaten as candy. Consistency is firm but slightly soft, making it more simple to use than the inferior rock hard palm sugar some are selling.

You get 8 small cakes, simply shave off what you need with a knife or use a hand grater (see photos), and it dissolves nicely in the cooking process. Use with curries, gourmet dishes, sauces, and various desserts.

Ingredients: Palm Sugar 100%.

Below are just some examples from our recipe index.

Elle Magazine recommends for "sexy" palm sugar.

Product of Thailand.

We also offer pure coconut sugar paste.

Thai Rama Chicken, 'Praram Long Song'

This dish dates to the time of King Rama 5, about 140 years ago. Originally it was made with beef, but nowadays pork and chicken are often used. Praram is a name for the God Rama, or King Rama, in The Ramkian. The Ramakian is the Thai version of an Indian Hundu epic written 2000 years ago. Long Song translates as 'take a shower'.

Praram Long Song is a popular dish in American Thai restaurants, but not often found in Thailand. Americans are fond of the peanut sauce, and in our recipe it's quite delicious. Sometimes called Swimming Rama, you can use broccoli, spinach, or other greens of your choice.


Thai Wide Noodles In Thick Spicy Sauce, Ladna

This is a new, elegantly spicy version of our original basic Ladna recipe. with the added complex flavor of our Shrimp Flavor Crushed Thai Chilli -- this is the best Ladna we've ever tasted.

Work quickly and you can create this dish quickly, just like this:

1. Thai Street Vendor Video makingn ladna on the spot, or

2. This Vendor Preparing a Basic Pork Ladna.

We prepared this  in two steps: first fry wide rice noodles until they're just starting to get crispy. Then a sauce is quickly made and poured over the noodles. The translation of Ladna in English is "Pour on the Face".

This has a touch of MSG which is optional but recommended here to get the optimal flavor.

Pork Leg on Rice, 'Khao Kha Moo'

Khao Kha Moo is not only a favorite of Thailand's Prime Minister (a celebrity chef), it's also one of those ubiquitous dishes served by street vendors throughout Thailand. If you think it's hard to make at home--it's not! The recipe below makes a wonderful khao kha moo but be sure you get the right piece of meat. Ask a butcher for a pork shank, fresh. You must get it "fresh" which means it has not been cured or smoked. Even if it's frozen that's fine just state "fresh" to denote that you don't want it already smoked or cured. Hock (cut from the shoulder) is also a cut that works fine. Try to get a front leg, as the back legs contain more fat and less meat.


Thai Crispy Fish Topped with Chili Sauce, 'Pla Rad Prik'

This is a very spicy crispy fish that's surprisingly simple to make using just a few ingredients. It's best to use fresh red Thai chile peppers. Regarding the fish, here we used tilapia you can use any fish such as cod, catfish, trout, salmon, etc. We had the fish cleaned and gutted but left the head on. You may prefer to remove the head, or even use fish fillets -- it doesn't matter.

Note that when you've finished frying your fish, put it in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes or so as you prepare the sauce, as this will make it even more crispy.


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.


Thai Sweet & Sour Sauce, 'Nam Jim Priao Wan'

This is a simple, Thai-style, sweet and sour sauce. Note that it isn't pink! The sauce is spicy and has complex flavors.

Serve with any grilled meat. We enjoyed it here with chicken, som tum, sticky rice, and hard-boiled eggs.

Thai Massaman Beef - Gaeng Massaman

This is a new version of Massaman beef that takes advantage of the premium quality massaman curry paste now available from:

Aroy-D and Mae Ploy massaman curry paste

Both brands create delicious massaman using this recipe.

Massaman cooked slowly with tender beef is one of our personal favorites, and many people who call us to order mention that they love massaman beef.  

This massaman is simple, and loaded with flavor.


Panang Chicken Breast, 'Panang Oak Gai'

This panang creates a large amount of meat and soup, would be great for potluck. We recommend using large chicken breasts with the bone still on. Panang Oak Gai means 'Panang Breast (oak) of Chicken (gai)'.

Thai Green Curry Salmon and Wild Rice

For years we've sold Thai green curry paste made of natural spices. Here we've created a very basic Thai green curry, true to authentic flavor but also lacking fiery chile heat because sliced chiles are not added. We ladled the curry over a nice blend of rice and honey-drizzled salmon. We used wild king and sockeye salmon, as shown.  You can use any seafood. Salmon is a great choice because honey-flavored salmon tastes so good with the green curry.

We like serving this with a combination of red and jasmine rice, as the wild rice character goes well with seafood.
