Examining Thai Food Basics

Most people will agree that Asian food has a great taste, but many people don’t realize that there are many different types. One common type that you may want to try is Thai food. Thai food is found in many different countries all over the world. You may find that the cooking in the Thai area is greatly impacted by other areas that surround- such as China and India. The food is definitely different than your typical Chinese or Japanese cuisine, but it has a great taste that you are sure to love.

An Emphasis on Spices

One thing that you will notice about Thai food is that it is full of spices. Most of the food that you will find from Thailand and this area is spicy. This is because they use a lot of different flavors and spices when they cook their food. Not everything that you eat that is of the Thai cuisine is spicy, but most of it is going to have some pretty distinct flavors due to the spices that are included. Most of the time you will find that it has either hot and spicy, sweet or salty flavors mixed in. You also find that most of the spices used are fresh. Coconut milk is also used in many of the dishes, which gives a distinct sweet taste that many people have grown to love.

Vegetarian Thai Dishes

If you are a vegetarian, you will be able to find some great Thai dishes that you will love. They use a variety of fresh veggies and stir fry them in different sauces to create different flavors. This means that you will always have variety in your veggies. Choose fresh veggies such as broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, squash and onions and you will have a vegetarian dish that tastes delicious. Use a variety of sauces from the Thai cuisine until you find one that you absolutely love!

The Key to Thai Recipes

When cooking Thai food, you will find that there is a key to following the recipe. This is that you will never really measure the spices and sauces that you use. Most of this is measured to taste, and you will want to find your happy median when you are making Thai dishes. For instance, those that love the taste of curry may want to add more, and some people may not want much at all. You can really mix and match your ingredients to put together Thai inspired dishes that your whole family will love.

There is also something to be said about Traditional Thai cooking. If you have the opportunity to visit a restaurant that serves authentic Thai food you should definitely take the chance while you can. Get some suggestions from your server. You may want to ask them what several of the most popular dishes are so that you can choose one that you will like. Getting information on the Thai dishes is important, because some of them may not suit your taste.
