Craving Thai food in places where there are actually no Thai restaurants near the area is total disappointment. Now there three options to solve this craving. One, travel around the whole region and go through the hassle of searching a Thai restaurant. Two, challenge yourself and search the internet for some Thai recipes you can do at home, and buy ingredients in the nearest grocery store. Three, forget the craving and eat any left over in your fridge.
But if you chose number 2, you are on the right web page. Here are some Thai Dishes you can easily prepare for yourself or for your family.
- Pad Kra Pao
This is a famous street food dish and you can find it almost everywhere. Pad Kra Pao is also known as Thai basil chicken. Pad Kra Pao is one staple and best seller options for those who usually don’t know what to have for lunch. All you need to make this dish are eggs, oil, chicken, garlic, Thai chilies, oyster sauce, soy sauce, dark sweet soy sauce, sugar, and as much as possible get, the Thai Holy Basil. Thai Holy Basil is the main ingredient to give the authentic aroma of the Pad Kra Pao. However, finding this is really hard and some use sweet basil as an alternative.

- Tom Yum Goong
This soup takes you to Thailand. Its unique flavor comes from the lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, fresh Thai chilies, and fresh lime juice. You can make your own Tom Yum soup easily because it just requires chopping, boiling, and adding some condiments along the way. In this process, you are just going to let all the ingredients mix in the boiling water to enrich the flavour of the soup.
- Som Tam
Hello Thai salad lovers! All you need to make this healthy dish, is a green papaya, which is the main ingredient. Some says it tastes like a fresh cucumber, both having the same crunchiness and juiciness. But if you really want the authentic Thai salad, you really have to find a fresh green papaya in the nearest Asian supermarket. Preparing this dish actually uses a mortar and pestle, but if you don’t have the tool you can just mix them all in bowl.
- Khao Pad
Another Thai street food made of rice is what exactly satisfies the craving of rice lovers. Khao pad is best with shrimp and lime. This dish is easy to prepare because you just need to stir-fry everything with some green leafy vegetable, and garlic. For the flavour, you need soy sauce, and oyster sauce, and some sugar if you want. And that is it. Indulge yourself with some Khao Pad at home.
- Kai Jeow Moo Sab
This is by far, the easiest dish you can make among the Thai foods that I have listed. This is because at some point in our lives, we have actually tried to cook omelet. The difference is just that this Thai omelet is cooked deep-fried. To make this dish, you need eggs, of course, chopped pork or chicken, soy sauce, and cooking oil.
There you go, you now have ideas on what to cook during your Thai-food-craving days.
