Courtesy-Eating Thai Food
Thai food is gaining popularity the world over. Every food lover would have tried gorging on the Pad Thai or the Khao Pad and why not? Thai food is the perfect balance of sweet, sour, salt and the spice flavor. So what makes Thai food so unique?
Like any other cuisine, Thai food also varies depending on the different regions of Thailand. But in totality Thai cuisine means health, variety and flavor.
Health: The main ingredients in Thai cuisine are vegetables, rice and lean meats which are not fat inducing foods. Also, authentic food uses just spices and fresh herbs which don’t pack calories in a meal.
Variety: In a Thai cuisine, the basic ingredient like rice, vegetables and meat remains the same but the rest varies as per the region which has led to an increase in the variety of cuisines. So there will be minor differences in ingredients and taste, say of a northern Thai cuisine to that in the south or central.
Flavor: The intense combination of flavors in Thai food just bursts in the tongue giving you sweet, sour and spicy tastes all at once. All this is due to the unique way in which the flavors are balanced using the spices, curry paste and the fresh herbs.
