Thai food – Thai culture for children
3 Most Common Dishes of Thailand
1) Tom Yam Goong: herbs, lemon grass, lime leaves, galangal, and shallots along with chili peppers, shrimp, and mushroom creates a spicy Asian gumbo that satisfies the taste buds.
2) Khao Man: (Thai chicken and rice) Usually a day meal, this common dish is often compared to America’s burger and fries, though a lot healthier. The chicken is gently boiled, and the water used to cook the chicken is used to cook the rice. This gives the rice a burst of flavor. Add your own spices to give it a personal spin!
3) Por Pia Tord: (Fried Spring Roll) Although it’s an appetizer, the fried spring roll is a commodity. Served with sweet and sour sauce, the fried vegetable filled pastries are all too yummy to bypass.
Thai Treats!!! Desserts of Thailand
1) Tub Tim Grub: (Water Chestnuts in Iced Coconut Syrup) Water chestnuts chopped into small squares and covered with powdered sugar combined with coconut milk, it’s a sweet and nutty treat. Typically served over crushed or shaved ice, it’s a cool snack for the hot summer Thailand days and a hit during the onset of the spring season.
2) Kao Niaw Ma-Muang: (Sweet Rice with Mangoes and Coconut Cream) Steaming Thai rice in coconut milk and syrup, and topping it ff with mangoes or another exotic fruit of your choice is exactly what will cure the sweet tooth cravings!
3) Klaui Nam Wa: (Bananas in Coconut Milk) Usually eaten by vegetarians, but extremely common and enjoyed by everyone of Thailand. Simply Thai bananas soaked in coconut milk, warmed, simplicity is key when it comes to a tasty quick fix.
