Steamed Vegetables & Spicy Dip ( Nam Prick Gapi Puk Lork )


A very traditional Isan Thai dish, a selection of steamed Thai vegetables with a spicy fish dipping sauce. It's very typical food, but something of an aquired taste.

1 Tablespoon Shrimp Paste
2 Teaspoons Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
4 Tablespoons Warm Water
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
5 Bird Chillies
5 Small Green Aubergines
10 gms Dried Shrimp
3 Garlic Cloves

1. This is about as easy as recipes get. You place all the ingredients in a Thai mortar and pound them until they are all ground together. This sauce can be kept for months.
2. Steam the vegetables until cooked.
3. Serve.

Serve With
Baby Corn ( Steamed )
Dok Kar ( Steamed )
