The food which is served in Thailand is totally different from the food which is served in the restaurants in the world. We have to say that the thai recipes in Thailand is not only delicious but it is spicy and yummy too. For that reason,Thai food attracts us more rather than to visit other places. Food has always been the weakest point of every person who loves eating and when it comes to Thai recipes, it even becomes more complicated for them what to choose and what to leave because it has a lot of delicious dishes that you can never be satisfied with one or two. Thai food is known for its balance of the four fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, and (optional) bitter. and it also can be quite hot (spicy).
In Thailand, food forms is a central part of any social occasion. That is, food often becomes the social occasion in itself, or reason to celebrate. This is partly due to the friendly, social nature of Thai people, but also because of the way in which food is ordered and eaten in Thailand. Characteristics of Thai recipes depend on who cooks it, for whom it is cooked, for what occasion, and where it is cooked. Dishes can be refined and adjusted to suit all palates. Instead of serving dishes in courses, a Thai meal is served all at once, permitting diners to enjoy complementary combinations of different tasters. A proper Thai meal should consist of a soup, a curry dish with condiments, a dip with accompanying fish and vegetables. A spiced salad may replace the curry dish. The soup can also be spicy, but the curry should be replaced by a non-spiced item. There must be harmony of tastes and textures within individual dishes and the entire meal.
Originally, Thai cooking reflected the characteristics of a waterborne lifestyle. Aquatic animals, plant and herbs were major ingredients. First of all the question that comes in our mind before eating the food is that "The Thai Food is beneficial for us or not..???" of course it is very much beneficial for our health because the Thai dishes such as Tom Yum Soup has incredible health benefits. As we all know that many of the fresh herbs and spices used in Thai cooking - such as turmeric, galangal, coriander, lemongrass, and fresh chillies - have immune-boosting and disease-fighting power. These herbs and spices helps you recover from headaches, body pains , bacterial and fungal infections, fights aging , flu and cold and many more diseases.
The secret behind the successful Thai cooking lies in the preparation of the ingredients as the actual cooking is done very fast and furious. Most Thai stir-fries including noodle dishes are cooked at high heats and for only a few minutes, which is what makes them particularly fresh and delicious. The Thai food taste at different places differ from that of Thailand because of unavailability of ingredients used in Thai cooking or it may be due to Chef's as they are not be the Thai Chef's.
