Thai Recipes


Thailand is now well-known in the West for its delicious food. The country offers many delicious dishes flavored with spices, lemon-grass or coconut. Although known for offering strong flavours, Thai meals always aim to achieve a balance these five fundamental flavours (spicy hot, sweet, sour, salty, and sometimes bitter).

In all honesty, Thailand is home not to just one cuisine - but to several - each region of the country has its own preferred ingredients and style of cooking; for example, lime juice is favored in the Northeast of Thailand, whereas coconut milk and fresh tumeric and common in the South.

As with most Southeast Asian countries, rice forms the building block of much of the Thai diet. Fragrant jasmine rice is native to Thailand, and is used in many dishes, or served plain as an accompaniment.

Here are some common and popular Thai dishes:
  • Green curry - Perhaps the best-known Thai curry outside of the country. Green curry is green in color, flavored with coconut, green chillies, and Thai basil, and contains vegetables as well as chicken, fish, shrimp or other seafood.

    Thai food - Green curry

  • Yellow curry - This is a curry that gets its yellow color from fresh tumeric. As well as tumeric, the curry also contains black mustard seeds, cumin, nutmeg, brown sugar, kaffir lime leaves, lime juice, coconut milk and fish sauce.

  • Red curry - As the name implies, a curry that is red in color. Red curry gains its very hot (spicy) flavour, as well as its color, from copious use of red chillies.

  • Pad Thai - This popular dish is a tasty form of fried rice noodles. The noodles are cooked with fish sauce, sugar, lime or tamarind, peanuts and egg, and then mixed with chicken, tofu or seafood.

  • Pad see ew - This dish consists of noodles with noodles with thiny sliced meat (pork or chicken), stir-fried and flavored with fish sauce.

  • Satay - Satay is grilled meat (usually chicken or pork) that is cooked on skewers and served with cucumber salad and peanut sauce. This dish is originally from Indonesia, but it has become a popular dish in Thailand, especially as a street food.

    Satay

  • Som tam - A popular salad made from grated papaya. There are several regional variations of this dish - the salad may include peanuts, shrimps and palm sugar, or salted fish, eggplant, and long beans, or salted black crab.

  • Tom yam - A hot and sour soup made with shrimp or other seafood, or chicken.

  • Gai pad khing - A Thai favorite, this dish is basically fried chicken with vegetables and sliced ginger.

Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog She Simmers.

Who can say no to a delicious plate of Pad Thai with Shrimp; a fresh, tangy Green Papaya Salad; golden Fried Spring Rolls; or a rich, savory Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish? Thai food is not only one of the most vibrant, wonderfully varied cuisines in the world, it also happens to be one of the tastiest, and a favorite among American eaters.

The good news is, with the right ingredients and a few basic tools and techniques, authentic Thai food is easily within reach of home cooks. Take it from Leela Punyaratabandhu, a Bangkok native and author of the popular Thai cooking blog She Simmers. In her much-anticipated debut cookbook, Leela shares her favorite recipes for classic Thai fare, including beloved family recipes, popular street food specialties, and iconic dishes from Thai restaurant menus around the world.

With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, Simple Thai Food is a complete primer for anyone who wants to give Thai cooking a try. By the end of the book, you’ll be whipping up tom yam soup and duck red curry that will put your local takeout joint to shame. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll discover an exciting new world of Thai flavors and dishes—including Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam, Leaf-Wrapped Salad Bites, and Crispy Wings with Three-Flavored Sauce—that will open your eyes to all the wonderful possibilities that real Thai cooking has to offer.

    Growing up in Thailand, Pailin Chongchitnant spent her childhood with the kitchen as her playground. From a young age, she would linger by the stove, taking in the sight of snowy white coconut being shredded, the smell of lemongrass-infused soups, and the sound of the pestle pounding against the granite mortar.

Combining her love of teaching with her devotion to Thai food, Pailin immediately connected with thousands of fans who wanted a friend and educator.
       In this much-anticipated cookbook, Pailin brings her signature warmth and impressive technique to Thai food lovers everywhere. She begins by taking readers on a beautifully photographed trip to Thailand to explore the culinary culture and building blocks central to Thai food. With foolproof and easy-to-follow instructions, Pailin breaks down the key ingredients, flavours, equipment, and techniques necessary to master authentic Thai cooking. Then, she shares her must-make recipes for curries, soups, salads, and stir-fries, including entire chapters on vegetarian and vegan dishes, dips and dipping sauces, and sumptuous Thai desserts.
