Southern Thai Food

The South is home to most of Thailand’s Muslims, its largest religious minority. They are mostly concentrated in the provinces adjacent to Malaysia, where Malay is spoken as commonly as Thai. In other southern provinces such as Songkhla and Phuket, Chinese predominate. Southern food reflects all this diversity. The coconut is used to the full, its milk thickening soups and curries, its oil for frying its grated flesh as a condiment. Cashew nuts and pineapple also grown in volume, and from a familiar part of the cuisine. The warm seas produce an abundance of fish, big lobsters, crabs, mussels, squid, prawns and scallops, prepared simply by steaming or frying, or more elaborately by cooking in a clay pot with noodles. Southerners like their food chilli-hot, and are also fond of the bitter taste imparted by a flat, native bean called sataw. A dish very typical of the South is kaeng tai pla, a very hot curry made with fish stomach, green beans, pickled bamboo shoots and potato. Fresh turmeric turns this and many other southern curries a distinctive yellow. There is even a dish that is called simply “yellow curry” (kaeng leuang), made from fish,green squash, pine apple, green beans and green papaya. The Chinese dish of thin rice noodles knowns as khanom chin appears here in a spicy fish curry sauce, serve with cucumber, pineapple , pickled cabbage and other fruits and vegetables. Roti. A round flat wheat bread descended from the Indian breads, is a real southern flavourite, totally assimilated into the local culture. Coffee, grown in the south, is a popular beverage and coffee shops can be found throughout the region. In some parts the coffee will be roasted on the premises with a charcoal-fire boiler, and serve with a range of snacks that can include steamed buns dumplings and a form of doughnut called pa thong ko.
