Cooking secrets


The secret of cooking delicious Thai food is knowing how to prepare and make use of the different spices.  Seeds of spices are pre-roasted on a frying pan or wok before being combined with other ingredients, some seeds are crushed to release its natural oils whilst some are fried.  When grinding ingredients, a stone or marble mortar and pestle is used rather than blenders.


The success of Thai cooking also comes from the fact that only the freshest ingredients are used.  Dried versions can never hold as much of the original flavors of the fresh ones.


Similar to Chinese cooking, stir-frying using a wok and spatula is one of the fundamental procedures in Thai cooking.  Before stir-frying, heat up the oil first as this will ensure that the food will not absorb oil excessively.  Just add more water or cooking wine instead of additional oil if you find that the oil has dried up during stir-frying.
