Isan Pork Sausage ( Side Grog Isan )


This is also called Sour Isan Sausage ( Nam Side Gorg ) , because it's left a few days to sour in the fridge, but that stage is optional! The sausage is a pork sausage, padded with sticky rice. The sticky rice needs to be soft, to get a softer consistency you can soak the pre-steamed rice in water for 5 minutes.
