Thai food is healthy, delicious, and easy to make at home! If you’d like some authentic Thai flavor in your life, make one of these Thai dishes or stop by Thailand Cuisine. Thailand Cuisine, with two locations in Kahului and Kihei, HI, is Maui’s best Thai restaurant. They have some suggestions on the best Thai dishes for beginners to make at home:
- Sticky Rice: Sticky rice is a Thai staple and a great one to start out cooking if you’re new to cooking Thai dishes. As a side and blank canvas, you can pair sticky rice with almost any main course, and it will complement the main well. Select rice with the label of “sticky,” “sweet,” or “glutinous” from your local grocery store or Asian specialty grocery store. The easiest way to cook sticky rice is with a rice cooker, but you can also cook it on the stove or in a steamer.
- Pad Thai: This classic Thai street dish is a crowd pleaser and one of the most popular and well-known Thai dishes sold at Thailand Cuisine. Pad Thai is a stir-fried noodle dish made with soaked dried wide rice noodles. Look for “Pad Thai noodles” or “straight-cut noodles” when you’re shopping at the Asian-section of the grocery store. Pad Thai can be made with different proteins and ingredients. It’s usually topped off with chopped peanuts and bean sprouts.
- Thai Curry: Thai curries are usually made with curry pastes and differ from Indian curries in that they use fresh herbs and other ingredients. Curries are great to make at home because you can customize them to your favorite spice level and favorite combinations of ingredients. Fish, shellfish, and meat are common main ingredients in Thai curries. Thailand Cuisine has a wide selection of curries to help you find out which one is your favorite!
