Spicy Thai Squid Salad, Green Curry and Thai sausages

For today’s dinner we enjoyed a Thai Spicy Salad, which is called yam plaa mueg, some noodles with green chicken curry (spagetti gaeng kiaw waan) and some Thai sausage Spicy squid salad(naem) with pieces of ginger, onions, chili, peanuts and salad. The first meal, the yam, is a typical Thai dish with a refreshing sweet and sour taste. It’s dressing is made usually of lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, rice vinegar, garlic and chili. The salad itself usually contains tomato, fresh onions, coriander plus a seafood or meat (in our meal it was obviously squid). The green curry’s paste is made of green Thai chilies, onions, garlic, lemongrass, coriander, galangal or ginger, ground cumin, shrimp paste, fish sauce, coconut milk, brown sugar and lime juice. The curry itself usually contains kaffir leaves, pepper, fresh basil, coconut oil, Thai eggplant plus a meat or seafood. Usually this curry is eaten with jasmine rice, but in my case it was a own modern creation with spaghetti. It’s a good idea to eat a yam and a curry (gaeng) together, as the fresh yam has a cooling and refreshing taste, whereas the curry make you feel hot.
