Thai Basil Tofu

15 May

Thai basil leaves are a staple to Thai cooking and must be used to obtain the authentic Thai taste as opposed to Italian basil leaves. The flavor is distinct and the scent is beautiful. Dolly auntie typically makes this dish with chicken and fish sauce for Neal. We substituted tofu and soy sauce and it was phenomenal! Also, I particularly love the unique texture of the tofu (mashed instead of cubed).

Panang Curry

1 May

Since I’m Indian, I stereotypically loved Indian kadhi (curry) when growing up. After trying Thai food for the first time, Thai curries also became a favorite. However, most Thai restaurants use fish sauce as a base for all curries and don’t have a good substitute on hand. So, I was inspired to learn to make panang so I could make sure and find an equivalent substitute and still enjoy the dish. This experiment was a huge success and I absolutely love the rich flavors in this dish.
