About Pak Boong Recipe:

Stir-fried water morning glory is one of Thailands most popular vegetable side dishes, its rarely seen at Thai restaurants outside Asia, as Pak Boong is hard to find.This simple yet delicious stir fried vegetable side dish made with Pak Boong (ผักบุ้ง; Water Morning Glory; Water Spinach) is one of Thailand's most popular foods. We think it should be on every first-time visitor's "must eat" list, as it is difficult to find at restaurants in the west. Seasoned with soy bean paste, garlic, chilies, soy sauce, and oyster sauce, the salty-spicy-sour-and-crunchiness of Pad Pak Boong Fai Daeng is great as a side dish or all by itself.

Directions

How to Make Pak Boong Recipe

STEP 01

Cut the ends of the morning glory and then clean them, then cut it into 4 inch long pieces, leaving the top section and leaves a little longer.

STEP 02

In a mortar and pestle crush 3-4 large cloves of garlic (removing the shells). Take it out in a bowl. And now add the thai hot chilies and lightly crush it until they are broken a little.

STEP 03

Put all the sauces, chilies, and garlic in the bowl, on top of the morning glory.

STEP 04

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, heat it.

STEP 05

Dump the bowl of ingredients into the pan, so that the sauces are on the bottom.

STEP 06

Quickly stir it up so that it cooks evenly. Fry then for 2-3 mins and keep stirring.

STEP 07

Add water as needed if it looks a little dry (there should be a thin-watery sauce in the pan).

STEP 08

It will take a min or so to cook, be careful, and don’t leave it on the heat for too long.

STEP 09

When leaves start getting wilted but the stalks are still stiff, you’ll know our dish is done. Stir it for another few minutes and remove it from the heat and serve.
