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.
