Easy To Make Thai Recipes

These Thai recipes smack with authentic flavor, and are easy to make at home. Spicy, sweet, salty and sour! From red curry chicken to pad Thai to mango sticky rice (and all stops in between). Plus, a list of Thai ingredients that can level up your Thai cooking with minimal effort.

Drunken Noodles – Pad Kee Mao These fragrant Thai rice noodles are savory, sweet and herbaceous. This is one of my favorite Asian noodle recipes of all time – because the taste is absolutely evocative of my time in Krung Thep!

Thai Basil Chicken Recipe Fiery and salty, you’ll do well to have some chopped Thai chilis soaking in fish sauce to up the spice level if you’re a spice junky.

Thai Green Curry Creamy, nutty, sweet and spicy, this green curry has it all. And there’s no shame in using a couple of tablespoons of store bought green curry paste.

Tom Kha Soup (Thai Coconut Soup) This silky and milky tom kha soup is loaded with aromatic flavors and only takes 17 minutes to make from start to finish. So, if you’re in a rush, you still have time for tom kha!

Pad Woon Sen (Thai Glass Noodle Stir Fry) Pad woon sen is a mix of glass noodles, eggs, tomatoes and veggies like cabbage, baby corn and carrots (but use the veggies you have handy). It’s all stir fried in a combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce and fish sauce.

Crazy Hot Garlic Chili Sauce This one is not for the faint of heart. Trust me. There are over 40 Thai chilis in this chili garlic sauce. But, for those of you that are still reading – this Asian style hot sauce isn’t simply one-note-heat.

Thai Red Curry Chicken I find comfort in a bowl of Thai curry. There’s a taste of home that comes through, no matter where you’re from. The heart of this dish is Thai red curry paste.

Classic Pad Thai Recipe When you eat pad Thai in Thailand there will be a spice/condiment caddy. Once that is placed on the table, it’s go time. You get to augment the dish to your personal taste.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce Whether you’re making chicken or beef satay – or just need a little aromatic peanut-y goodness with your veggies or noodles, this may end up being your new obsession.

Panang Curry Panang curry is generally on the milder side of things when it comes to spice levels. But that doesn’t mean it’s timid. Far from it. You’ll get vibrantly sweet, nutty and salty notes from this heady Thai recipe.

Red Coconut Curry Soup Don’t let the short cooking time fool you. This Thai soup has a complex flavor profile that combines the boldness of red chilies with sweet and wholesome notes of peanut butter and coconut.

Thai Potato Curry (Vegan) This vegan Thai potato curry is loaded with warming spices and the rich sweetness of coconut milk. Best thing (aside from the flavor) – it’s ready in 25 minutes from start to finish. Easy peasy.

Thai Egg and Brussels Sprouts Salad This one SMACKS! While I’m using egg and Brussels sprouts, there’s more than a passing resemblance (in both flavor and appearance) to the seminal Thai beef salad.

Vegetable Pad See Ew (Savory Thai Stir Fried Noodles) Of all the stir-fried noodle dishes I’m likely to order at my local Thai restaurant, pad see ew tends to be my go-to. It’s smoky, savory perfection when it’s done right.

Steamed Fish With Ginger Chili Lime Sauce This whole steamed trout is moist, flaky and tender. But the best part is the fresh cilantro and the zingy lime, garlic and chili fortified sauce.

Thai Vegetable Curry Noodle Soup Sure, this veggie loaded Thai noodle soup features the usual suspects in terms of red curry paste, fish sauce and coconut milk. But what if I told you that shallots – fried until crispy – are the linchpin that brings the whole thing together?

Thai Yellow Curry With Cauliflower While there’s a bit of heat in this one, yellow curry paste tends to be milder than the red and green variants. Turmeric delivers the yellow hue to this particular curry paste.

Thai Jungle Curry Hailing from the mountainous city of Chiang Mai, jungle curry is spicy – but the heat comes from a source you might not expect in most Thai recipes. Whole black peppercorns deliver fiery pops of heat without being full-on volcanic.

Thai Cucumber and Shrimp Salad Now, if you like things light and refreshing – this Thai salad is right up your alley. But the inclusion of chopped chilis, fish sauce and lime ensure that this cucumber salad is still assertive, salty and spicy.

Thai Iced Tea (ชาเย็น) Is there a drink more synonymous with the land of smiles than Thai iced tea? It’s the perfect refreshing antidote to unforgiving heat and crushing humidity.

Mango Sticky Rice Recipe Of all the Thai desserts out there, this is the one that ALWAYS gets me fired up when it see it on the menu at any Thai restaurant. Khao niew mamuang is deceptively simple to make.
