My favorite menu for the southern of Thailand is indeed Kua Gling! This actuall has no English name but it can be describe as Pork Stir-fried Hot and Spicy Paste or you can call it Kua-Gling(คั่วกลิ้ง).

Southern people always love a curry style menus. And because most of their menus are very spicy. So that’s why the main ingredient of their chilli paste is turmeric which i lately understand that is help protecting your stomach from eating too spicy foods. But this menu i adjusted the level of spicy to be my version which is not very spicy but still spicy a bit. I actually could not find a southern curry paste near by. The Grocery store doesn’t have it, and i have no time for market shopping. So I decided to just use a red curry paste and add a little bit of turmeric in there to make it more southern. Anyway, i think even you do not have a turmeric at all you still can make this dish.

The concept of this menu is not that complicate. Just stir-fry your ground pork or chicken with the curry paste until they are dry then add Kaffir Lime Leaf, Fresh Pepper, Lemon Grass then stir-fry. Serve with rice and add boiled egg would make the combination.

Tips: To boil a perfect egg york: Water boil at 100C and after that put an egg into the boiled water for 8 minutes. Then leave it in a cold water for a while. You will get a perfect boil egg york as in the picture.
