Pickled Garlic (Water) ( Ka Thiem Dog )

pickled-garlic.jpg

A common ingredient in Thai cuisine, we use both the pickled garlic together with the pickling water. The pickling water is used to add a strong garlic sour note to noodles and soups.

On this site when the recipe calls for 'pickled garlic water', I mean this pickling juice, although when you're making soup, I often throw in a bulb of the garlic too to emphasize the flavour.

I think this is the sauce you are after (the peanut tamarind and sugar sauce lower down the recipe):

You mentioned it was spicy, you can add dried flaked chillies to the sauce in that recipe when you want to make it spicy.
