One of the main features of Thai cooking is the use of fresh ingredients and the ability of the dish to be shared, as eating is considered a social gathering in Thailand. While presentation is also important, it is not as much a culinary art form as say, Japanese dishes, but non the less Thai dishes are normally bright and colorful and often decorated with carved fruit, vegetables and often flowers. While Asian food shops in western countries like America have traditionally stocked mainly Chinese food, now they stock an incredible amount of Thai ingredients and in many cities there are active Asian markets for fresh ingredients. Lets look at a really simple Thai dish that you have probably never heard of before with practical tips for a western home kitchen.

It would amaze you to hear how many mothers like to "fill the family up" And this IS exactly what they do - until their poor sons and daughters and husbands succumb to some form of illness.
