Jungle Stir-Fry ( Gay Pad Prick Gang )


The ingredients in this stir-fry are the sort of things you'd find in the Thai Jungle. Green peppercorns for spices, Doc Kae tree flowers for a bitter bite, various vegetables and wild chickens! Sadly, Thailand has very little jungle left today, and this is the closest many Thai will ever come to the jungle.

300 gms Corn Fed Chicken Leg or Wing
20 gms Chopped Baby Corn
20 gms Chopped Aubergine
20 gms Chopped Doc Kae
10 gms Green Pepper
10 gms Sweet Basil
1 Tablespoon Red Curry
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon Oil

1. Clean and chop the chicken into 3 cm lengths, deep fry in hot oil until crunchy, then remove and drain.
2. Preheat oil in a shallow frying pan, add the red curry paste and fry the paste for 20 seconds. This will bring out the taste.
3. Add the fried chicken, sugar and all the vegetables, together with 2-3 tablespoons water.
4. Fry for 30 seconds on a high heat then remove and serve.

Serve With
Hot Fragrant Rice
