Notes

This recipe is by my girlfriend. She is from Thailand, and I am always trying to learn more about authentic ways of preparing Thai dishes. This is one of my favorites! So Spicy! So Yummy!

I have to recommend using a sunny side up egg over this dish. It really completes and compliments the dish well. The egg adds a nice balance to the spicy.

You can control the heat of the dish by increasing or decreasing the amount of Thai Chilies used.
