Gluoy Bwod Chee/Thai Bananas in Coconut Milk ~~ Thai Cuisine

Thai cuisine, this cuisine is very close to my heart, my most favourite cuisine after Indian cuisine. Whenever i get a chance to cook from this cuisine, i dont even hesitate a second to cook from. Thai ingredients are easily available for me as am living in Paris china town, obviously its like going to an Indian grocery for me. Am running a month of blogging marathon with an interesting theme, yes my theme for this mega marathon is Around the World in 30days starting with alphabets. Obviously when i was chosing my recipe list for this theme, am was very much sure that i'll be cooking something from Thai cuisine for the alphabet 'T'.The ideal Thai meal is a harmonious blend of the spicy, the subtle, the sweet and sour, and is meant to be equally satisfying to eye, nose and palate. A typical meal might include a clear soup (perhaps bitter melons stuffed with minced pork), a steamed dish (mussels in curry sauce), a fried dish (fish with ginger), a hot salad (beef slices on a bed of lettuce, onions, chillies, mint and lemon juice) and a variety of sauces into which food is dipped. This would be followed by sweet desserts or fresh fruits such as mangoes, durian, jackfruit, papaya, grapes or melon.

Thai cuisine is essentially a marriage of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences harmoniously combined into something uniquely Thai. The characteristics of Thai food depend on who cooks it, for whom it is cooked, for what occasion, and where it is cooked to suit all palates. Originally, Thai cooking reflected the characteristics of a waterborne lifestyle. Aquatic animals, plants and herbs were major ingredients. Large chunks of meat were eschewed. Subsequent influences introduced the use of sizeable chunks to Thai cooking.
