Chef Rungtiwa Sorlae Shares 2 Exotic Thai Recipes To Try

The way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach; this is a fact on which we all agree. With a good meal, you can make anyone happy. Food is also a way to bring the world closer. The cuisines from different regions when they travel to other places give them an opportunity to explore their culture. In India, we have welcomed many cuisines with open arms, and Thai food is one of them.  

Known for the use of contrasting flavours, this cuisine combines hot spices with sweet and light citrus flavours. Thai food brings vibrant flavours, aromatic herbs, and a beautiful blend of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy notes. In India, there are many restaurants that serve delicious Thai food, such as pad Thai, tom yum goon, laab, khao soi, and khao pad. 

But if you are looking to make some exotic Thai dishes in your own kitchen, here are two delicious recipes shared by Chef Rungtiwa Sorlae, Thai Cuisine Specialty Chef, Sheraton Grand, Bengaluru:
