Stir Fried Young cabbage with garlic and fish sauce

Stir fried cabbage

Galam Pri Tod Nam Bplah

Serves 3-4 Cooks in 10 minutes Difficulty EASY

This recipe works wonderfully as a side dish. It is famously served at banquet style dinners or party’s. I love it with chicken wings or chicken knuckles.

I love this dish. It is super simple yet elegant and includes the classic Thai flavours of garlic and fish sauce.

Younger cabbage works better as the leaves are much more supple and delicate. The secret here is keeping the leaves soft and delicate.

The greatness of this recipe lie in its simplicity, follow the simple steps and impress with this dish every time.

  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
