Fusion Thai Food using WORDFOODS Sauces and Marinade
These days there are a lot of fusion cuisines blooming up with fresh ideas waiting to be discovered. And with the variety of ready-made sauces and marinades which available in most supermarkets also make it stress less to prepare International cuisines such as Moroccan Chicken, Thai Tom Yum Soup, Singapore Fried Noodles and etc. In this write-up I would like to thank WORDFOODS for organising such International Fusion Recipe Swap Challenge to try out their products and as well as sharing (guest post) our recipes with another “penpal” from the other part of the world (my “penpal” is Anita-Clare & Caro from Lover Of Flavours in the UK).

[3 recipes] Thai-style Steamed Pomfret, Seafood Tom Yum and Thai Basil Minced Pork

Seafood Tom Yum and Thai Basil Minced Pork
Most of us who loves Thai cuisine are usually fans of spicy and sour food. And in Thailand, Tom Yum Talay (hot and spicy seafood soup) is known for its health benefits and is often equivalent to the chicken noodle soup which we used to have it when we are not feeling well. Moreover this delicious one pot soup is also pretty easy to make once you have all the necessary ingredients.

In this post, I would be sharing 3 common homecook Thai dishes which you can easily prepare them at home with ingredients that are available from leading supermarkets or Thai grocery stalls.

KNORR Stir-Fry Tom Yam Chicken

Recently I found some new Knorr recipes from the i-weekly supplement booklet and most of them look delicious and pretty easy to prepare at home. Since I am a Knorr supporter who always stock up quite a varieties of their products in my pantry, I decided to try out this Stir-fry Tom Yam Chicken which is a very eye-catching dish from their Facebook page.

After a quick Google, I found the related recipe from Philip's website (KeropokMan). And with the necessary ingredients here is my version of Stir-fry Tom Yam Chicken which my family agrees that it goes pretty well with steamed rice! Give it a shot if you are a Tom Yam lover as this dish is quick and hassle free.

Tom Yum Talay (Hot And Sour Seafood Soup)

Have being craving for Clear Tom Yum Soup ever since my cruise trip back from Phuket where we had an enjoyable authentic Thai dishes for lunch over at Surin Beach (will share more on my Phuket trip in upcoming post soon). Initially I bought a packet of tom yum "seasoning" from Phuket which I wanted to try but after seeking some advice from Amy (Mothering Corner), I decided to try out her recipe using fresh ingredients instead of instant tom yum paste or seasoning.

Thai Green Curry Roast Chicken

Pin It
The quickest way to enjoy a bowl of comfort curry dish at home is by using curry paste that is easily available at major supermarkets. In Singapore there are many different types of curry pastes ranging from Chinese(Singapore curry, nonya curry), Malay(rendang, kari ayam), Indian(fish curry), to international choice of Japanese, Thai and etc.

Here we are using Thai Green Curry paste which is best with chicken(recipe HERE), pork or seafood whereas Thai Red Curry works best with beef, lamb or oily fish such as salmon.

Stir-fried Chicken Fillet with Thai Basil Leaves

Not long ago, I have tried a similar version of this dish using minced pork which you could refer to the recipe HERE. And for this "Stir-fried Chicken Fillet with Thai Basil Leave" dish, I replaced the minced pork with chicken fillet strips which brings up another flavour and texture to this unique Thai street food. I am sure it would be a popular choice for those who prefer lean meat such as chicken breast meat which is low in fat content.

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Our family prefers Thai Green Curry when compared to their Red Curry even though sometime it might tends to be slightly spicy and it has that hint of sweetness that is not usually associated with red curries. Plus by adding some fresh Thai basil and kaffir lime leaves together with extra dose of coconut milk it actually lifts up the aroma and taste of this dish too.

Stir-Fried Pork With Basil Leave

Stir-fried Pork with Basil Leave (Pad Gra Prao) is one of the most common street/household food in Thailand. It’s usually served as a quick one-dish meal eaten with white rice and usually topped with an extra fried egg. And since I have some Thai Sweet Basil left over from preparing the Thai Green Curry (recipe HERE), I decided use them for this stir-fried pork with basil leave to go with the curry.

Thai Red Duck Curry

This Thai Red Duck Curry is one of my favourite curry dishes during my 2.5 years in Brisbane. I remembered we used to drive at least 3 hours once a month to and from our home to Chinatown in order to get roast duck to make this dish. And I must admit that duck meat definitely goes well with something sweet and sour like plums sauce so in this case this dish blends well with lychees and pineapples as one of the ingredients.

Thai-style Basil Chicken Salad

The most common Basil Leaves that found and used in Singapore is the Thai Basil Leave which can be used in a wide range of Thai, Vietnamese and other ethnic cuisine. It's spicy, licorice flavored shoots and leaves are used in salads, soups and curries.

For this salad dish, we are using Fresh Thai Basil Leaves for one of the sauce ingredients. The taste of this dish is kind of local Thai-style where it is sort of sweet and spicy. You can add in any fruits or vegetables that you prefer to make the salad base to go with the crispy chicken strips.

1/2 Chicken Breast Fillets (1/2 边鸡胸肉)
1 Teaspoon Light Soy Sauce (1 小匙酱油)
1/2 Tablespoon Cooking Wine (1/2 汤匙花雕酒)
1 Teaspoon Cornflour(1 小匙玉米粉)
Some Pepper(少许胡椒粉)
2 Tablespoon Sweet Potato Flour (2 汤匙地瓜粉)
1 Tablespoon Cornflour (1 汤匙玉米粉)

1. Wash and cut chicken fillet into 2cm wide strips then marinate with Soy Sauce, Cooking Wine, Cornflour and Pepper for at least 30 minutes or more.
将鸡胸肉洗净, 切2cm 宽条状, 然后加入酱油, 花雕酒, 玉米粉和胡椒粉调味至少30 分钟以上.
2. Coat the marinated chicken with the flour mixture(sweet potato flour + cornflour) and set aside for 5 minutes before deep-frying.
将腌好的鸡肉条沾混合好的地瓜粉和玉米粉, 然后放在一边等5分钟后才炸.( 这能防止粉从鸡肉上滑落)
3. Heat up half pot of oil and deep-fry the chicken strips in two batches until golden brown, drain and set side.
热半锅油, 把鸡肉条分成俩次炸成金黄色后, 捞起放在吸油纸上吸干油分.

Chilli Sauce:
2 Cloves Garlic, grated (2 颗蒜, 切末)
2 Small chilli, finely chopped (2 颗小辣椒, 切末)
8 Thai Basil Leaves, finely chopped (8 叶九层塔, 切末)
1 Teaspoon Chopped Spring Onion(1 小匙葱花)
2 Tablespoons Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce (2 汤匙泰式甜辣椒酱)
1.5 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (1.5 汤匙柠檬汁)
1 Tablespoon Thai Fish Sauce (1 汤匙鱼露)
1/2 Teaspoon Sugar (1 /2 小匙糖)
1 Tablespoon Drinking Water (1 汤匙食水)

1. Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside for later used. (If you don't prefer hot, then don't add any small chilli or you can reduce to only using 1)
把全部酱料的材料放在一个小碗里搅拌均匀, 待用.( 如果您不会吃太辣, 就不要放小辣椒或只放一颗)

Salad Base: (optional)
1 Red Apple, shredded (1 个萍果, 切丝)
1 Japanese Cucumber, shredded (1 条日本小黄瓜, 切丝)
1 Small Carrot, shredded (1条小胡萝卜, 切丝)
6 Cherry Tomato, halves (6颗小番茄, 切半)
6 Lychee, remove seeds (6颗荔枝, 拨壳, 去种子)

1. Mix all the above ingredients in a mixing bowl then set aside in the fridge until serve.
把全部的沙拉材料放在一个碗里搅拌均匀, 放进冰箱待用.
2. You can used any other fruits or vegetables that you prefer or in season.

1. Place salad mixture on a serving plate, top with half of the fried chicken strips then drizzle some chilli sauce over the chicken and salad.
首先把拌均匀的冷沙拉扑在大盘上, 然后放一般的炸鸡肉条, 接着均匀的淋上些辣椒酱.
2. Continue topping the rest of the chicken and drizzle the rest of the sauce around it.
之后继续放上剩余的鸡肉条, 再淋上些辣椒酱.

You might not need all the sauce, so add the amount that you prefer. Or you can serve it as dipping sauce for the chicken strips without the salad.
你可以随自己喜好放多或少的酱料, 又或者你也可以用来沾不要淋上去.

This sauce is enough for 1 chicken breast without the salad.
这个酱料成分足够用一个鸡胸肉. Posted by Picasa

Pad Thai Noodles

I always wanted to replicate this noodle dish at home as I miss eating the version I had during our stay in Brisbane. As you know this is one of the well-known dish  in Thailand known as Pad Thai. It has a subtle substance of flavours with pickled turnip, crushed peanuts, fresh chives and a dash of lime. You can hardly find a good one in Singapore because they are not as popular as Thai curry and rice dishes.
