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.

    I was reminiscing on my 2019 trip to Thailand and I decided to look up the recipe. At first, all I got was sweet chili sauces. None of them looked like what I remembered. I was about to give up, then I found your site! :) I knew I found the right thing as soon as I saw the picture! The nam pal prik is lovely. I also made prik namsom but the first one is definitely our favourite. I plan to try all the condiments listed! Thank you for the authenticity!
