I wouldn't go as far as calling this one a 'wartime recipe.' But given the situations that we are all in right now, I couldn't help but hunker down, live, and eat simply. And this dish came right into mind when it comes to being prudent with your ingredients yet still having a mightly delicious, nutritious, and healthy meal.

A classic stew that has proliferated throughout Thailand, Moo Palo or Khai Palo is something we can make and keep for days. It is a handy stew to have around because it gets better every time it is simmered to reheat. I am now making Phuket's famous 'Palo' which they call 'Moo Hong' with salted eggs from Chaiya district - the district known for their delicious salted eggs - in Surat Thani.
ยำส้มโอแบบ naked 😋 ทำทานเองก็จะได้ยำส้มโอรสอ่อนๆ ถูกใจ มีความส้มโอเต็มๆ ไม่ถูกกลบด้วยน้ำพริกเผา บลาๆๆ แทนมะพร้าวคั่วคือวอลนัตอบค่ะ ทานกับชะพลูหลังบ้าน | My own riff on Yum Som-O that has nothing to mask the sweet and fragrant tastes of the main event. 😋
These Shanghai Noodles were a delicious and unique staple of the now-closed Scala Restaurant in Bangkok's Siam Square. It was our go-to favourite, even more so than their signature dishes. Now, since I am cooking from my memories a lot, I am so happy to report that I have managed to imitate the tastes of the dish closely to perfection.
Thai-style omelette, as comforting as it is, is multipurpose in a Thai meal. From a delicious main to easy side, an omelette also appears in a soup as per my mother's own in-a-pinch repertoire.
Sator or stinky beans and Cha-Om or climbing wattles - known for their pungent smells - are staple Thai ingredients. They are delicious proofs that in many Thai recipes, stinky + stinky + stinky = bam delicious! Enjoy!
