Fried shrimp in tamarind sauce is a really simple dish and can be prepared and cooked in 20 minutes. I love cooking with tamarind, it’s sour and tangy and really gives your dish that Thai, asian taste.
Riang leaves are quite chewy and have a creamy texture when eaten. It is a delicious ingredient for Thai soups and stir fries. For my recipe it will been one of the main ingredients, simply stir fried with eggs.
When I first tried this simple salad I was completely hooked by it’s spicy and sour taste. It is not something I teach at my Thai cooking class and it’s actually not something easy to find on any Thai menu. So how come it features here you might ask?
