In the mood for some Thai food today? Then take a peek at these authentic Thai recipes. Savories and sweet — delicious, intensely flavorful, and ready in no time!
Sweet, sour, salty, and bitter are the flavors you should expect from these Thai recipes.
It’s quite rare to find a Thai dish that’s purely sweet or solely sour.
Nope, you would always get a combination of flavors, and make no mistake about it —- the balancing of the flavors is part of the fun of preparing these easy Thai recipes.
Easy Thai dishes
Do you want to give your regular white rice an extra oomph? Then this Thai Coconut Rice is a great way to do it.
Jasmine rice that’s intensely flavored with coconut — creamy and nutty.
It’s excellent with grilled chicken or fish, so keep in mind when it’s barbeque season!
Can’t handle too much heat in your food? Then go easy on the chili when preparing this gai pad king recipe.
But don’t be stingy on using fresh ginger; it’s the hero ingredient of this traditional Thai recipe — deliciously refreshing, with a bit of kick.
Serve with a bowl of jasmine rice, and enjoy!
Ground pork, sweet Thai basil, and some chili (of course!) are minimum ingredients, but a sure explosion of flavors in every bite.
Thai basil pork is a regular weeknight main dish in our house, and you just have to try it to see why.
A handful of ingredients, super-quick cooking time, but it sure does not feel like it once you start eating this classic Thai dish.
While traditionally served as a main dish, Thai stir-fried tofu and bean sprouts is also an excellent side dish.
Serve it with some fried or grilled meat or fish, and you can pretty much skip the rice. 🙂
The trick is not to overcook the bean sprouts. Instead, make sure there’s a bit of crunch left in them, so you get the combination of flavor AND texture in every bite.
Traditional Thai dessert
You cannot get fresh coconut milk where you live?
Not a problem; canned coconut milk is excellent for making this classic Thai dessert recipe.
The same goes for the legumes. No time to soak the dried beans? Use a can of cooked black beans instead.
Thai black beans in coconut milk is a traditional Thai dessert that you can prepare with what’s considered pantry staples nowadays.
Creamy, nutty, sweet, with some saltiness in the end. If you like these flavors, then you should give dessert a try soon! 🙂
