    We both love Thai food, but we tend to go on an occasional shopping expedition to the Asian supermarkets in Chinatown, Manchester to get our goodies.

  • It seems very reasonably priced and delivery isn't over the top.......might give them a go.

    Thanks for the link.

    have used them a few times, never had any problems. in fact, I would rate their customer service highly. once had 2 dented tinned rambutans , sent them email and they refunded me with no questions asked! :D and in case anyone wants to know, their ground chilli and garlic in oil gives an absolute killer kick! tiny tiny bit goes a long long way. great curry pastes and instant noodles too. :p

    i have been eating hot and sour chicken soup almost everyday (have another pan full on the stove even as i type) its so easy and delicious.

    i am also a fan of thai curry but its a bit too fattening

    has anyone got any tried and tested thai style favorites?

    i have a fairly good storecupboad
    any recipes gratefully received

  • Fish sauce + lime juice (or lemon) + a bit of sugar = lovely thai salad dressing!
  • Oooo Vixtress, do you have a recipe? My friend and I always goto the local thai restaurant and he orders it every time, loves it! Would be good to pass a recipe on

  • Thai Green Curry and Noodles

    1 can Coconut milk
    2tbsp thai green curry paste
    Dried noodles, cooked according to package instructions, rinsed under cold water and drained.
    Vegetables - I sometimes use a pack of stir fry veg, otherwise just a mixture of whatever I've got.

    Briefly stir fry the veg in either a couple of sprays of oil or a couple of teaspoons of oil. Add the coconut milk and the thai curry paste, stir and bring to the boil, add the cooked noodles and heat through. Serve in bowls with prawn crackers on the side,

    It can be a bit messy to eat, but is cheap and delicious.
    By the way I buy the boxes of uncooked prawn crackers in homebargains for 29p and just fry them as I want them, each box does about 4 meals.

    stir fries!!!!

    beef sliced up with a little bit of black pepper. fry with spring onions and a bell pepper (and any other veg you have ..carrots, sweet peas, green beans etc). add a mixture of 2parts soy sauce, 1 part rice vinegar, 1 part cornflower, garlic and ginger. Pour over the meat/onion mixture and stir quickly and continuously. add noodles to the wok which have been cooked for 2mins (boil water, take off heat and add noodles). and serve
    Smile and be happy, things can usually get worse!
