We learnt this recipe in a cooking class whilst travelling in Thailand and fell in love with it.

It costs a bit for the ingredients but the flavour takes us back to that holiday whenever we have it.  Hope you like it tmrc_emoticons.)

    This is better than the local resteraunt version. We used to get a tinned version from Ayam who have ceased either making it or delivering it to Western Australia. It was great to just open the tin with the ingredients in there and just add which ever meat. This recipe is brillian and delicious.

    Thank you we have our Tom Kah back. Lol
