Curry Puffs กะหรี่ปั๊บ - Episode 103

Curry Puffs กะหรี่ปั๊บ - Episode 103

Curry Puffs กะหรี่ปั๊บ can be easily found all over Southeast Asia, but I seem to have a hard time finding them in the US. The closest thing to a traditional Southeast Asian curry puff that I have been able to find is an empanada. Getting that classic curry puff swirl look in the pastry is a bit tricky. The key is to use two different kinds of dough, and then combine them, and then roll them out twice. I really like this recipe, and had a great time making the curry puffs. Of course, I had a better time eating them. The flavor of the filling was amazing, and luckily I had extra, which I ate with with a spoon. The pastry was crispy and flaky, and cooked just right. An under cooked pastry would allow for the filling to seep though and make your curry puff shell soggy. An over cooked pastry would to to hard or possibly even burnt, making your curry puff inedible. Getting all just right the first time can be a bit tricky if you're not comfortable in the kitchen. But that said, it isn't a super hard recipe. Just follow along with the video above, and feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Pineapple Fried Rice ข้าวผัดสับปะรด - Episode 102

Pineapple Fried Rice ข้าวผัดสับปะรด - Episode 102

Pineapple Fried Rice ข้าวผัดสับปะรด is perhaps one of the best fried rice recipes out there. Pineapple fried rice not only has pineapple, but it also has a hint of curry. The flavor profile of this Pineapple Fried Rice recipe is unlike other fried rice recipes that you might have had. Another really cool thing that you can do is use the pineapple itself as the serving bowl. Don't cut the pineapple in half, instead just cut off one face of it. Then use a small knife and spoon to cut out a bowl inside the pineapple. Serve your finished pineapple fried rice right inside of the pineapple. The recipe is easy to make, it tastes delicious, and it is a great way to get rid of that left over rice. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed in this one.

Fried Chicken with Rice ข้าวมันไก่ทอด - Episode 101

Fried Chicken with Rice ข้าวมันไก่ทอด - Episode 101

Fried chicken and rice (ข้าวมันไก่ทอด) is a quick and easy street food in Thailand. But fried chicken and rice can also be a quick and easy home meal here in the US. It is best to use chicken thighs for this fried chicken recipe. They are a little more tender, due to the thighs having a bit more fatty tissue. Be sure to cut away the excess fatty tissue when prepping, but feel free to leave a little. Since this chicken recipe is deep fried to a crisp, any leftover fat typically gets cooked away. The best dipping condiment for this type of fried chicken and rice is a nice sweet chili sauce. Lucky for you, I did a wonderful homemade sweet chili sauce in Episode 100 so be sure to check it out.
