Ever tried cooking Thai food at home?? Not only is it delicious , but quiet flavourfull too. And the best part , you can make it with the available ingredients at home.......

For the ones who are quiet new to thai food , heres a short overview.

Thai cuisine is also heavily influenced by Indian spices and flavors, which is evident in its famous green, red, and yellow curries. Although Thai curry incorporates many Indian spices in its pastes, it still has its own unique flavor with the addition of local spices and ingredients, such as Thai holy basil, lemongrass, and galangal (Thai ginger).

A typical Thai meal includes four main seasonings: salty, sweet, sour, and spicy.

The plain rice, sticky rice or the Thai rice noodles served alongside a spicy Thai curry or stir-fry, tends to counteract the spiciness.

Thai cooking is simple, quick and healthy.The ingredients like lemongrass, basil, galangal that add the unique flavor to the Thai food if not available can be substituted with lemon zest, tulsi leaves, and ginger. To make it more simpler I have used the regular khara peanuts that you get in the market. So now you just have to remove the chilka and you have your roasted peanuts. I have used the ready made tetra packed coconut milk but you can extract milk from one coconut.

So..... as you see it is not tiresome at all.

Today I have tried to make a filling Thai Meal, so lets go Thaiii!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
