mate if I knew how to cook it myself I'd be having it every day - my missus tried to make it over here herself a couple of years ago and it didn't come out right cos she couldn't source the proper ingredients - there's some elements that need to be fresh and the only place that's gonna happen is if you are in thailand itself

however one of her friends over here is a cracking Thai cook so I will ask her next time I see her and make some notes and post for you all anyway

cheers

here it is as promised - enjoy..

gai pat prik pao

First you need to make the chilli paste:

Ingredients are

* 5 dried spur chillies
* 8 roasted shallots
* 6 cloves roasted garlic
* 2 cup vegetable oil
* 1 tablespoon palm sugar
* 1.5 tablespoon tamarind juice
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 3 tablespoon fish sauce
* 1 teaspoon shrimp paste

(you may need to alter the quantities - for 2 people you need a enough for 2 heaped tablespoons of it)

Roast the dried chillies in a very hot (dry) wok
do the same with the garlic and shallots

Using a mortar and pestle mash the chillies and salt to a fine paste, add the shallots and garlic and continue to grind until you get a smooth paste then finally add in the shrimp paste and mix in

Transfer the mixture to a pan, saute in oil until fragrant. Season and taste with fish sauce, sugar and tamarind juice, stirring well

Then once you have the paste do this:

Ingredients

*some chicken (can be other things if you don't like chicken also works ok with clams or squid apparently)
* 1 teaspoon sugar
* 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
* 1/2 cup sweet basil leaves
* 2 tablespoons roasted chilli paste
* 4 fresh chillies, cut into long strips
* 2 teaspoons garlic, finely chopped
* 1 tablespoon fish sauce
* fresh peppercorns if you can get them

Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic in the hot oil and fry until it becomes golden.
Add chicken and stir fry until it is cooked
Season with fish sauce, sugar, and roasted chilli paste.
Before you take it off the heat, sprinkle with sweet basil leaves, fresh peppercorns and red fresh chilli. Stir-fry for another 10 seconds. Transfer to a serving dish and serve with steamed rice.

note that if you've never heard of some of these ingredients you can get most of this stuff from the chinese supermarkets if you're lucky enough to have got one near where you stay..

cheers,

TooManyxx

Many thanks for posting the recipe shroomz - much appreciated - its nicely detailed - i've used most of the ingredients before and would be familiar with them but not quite in that combination (the roasting aspect looks interesting - i would imagine it really draws out the flavours) and haven't used tamarind for years. I will certainly be giving it a go and am looking forward to trying it - i might add 'to be washed down with lashings of cool cider! Many thanks again

Hi Cornelius

you're welcome for the recipe man - yeah we've got a few Chinese and Thai supermarkets in Edinburgh - they're a godsend as far as the missus goes

the Chinese ones are the cheapest though for everything

good to see someone else from Scotland on here - although I've only lived here 10 years or so - still continue to think of myself as a Manc cos that's where I grew up and I haven't lost the accent yet..

cheers
