Thai Basil Tofu



Don’t you love Thai cuisine?
The fragrance and the flavors..I absolutely love it..
I have to admit many a times Thai cuisine have made me cry ..coz of its red hot chilies..
But I never get enough of those spicy, tongue burning delights!!
By the time I finish a Thai main course I would have already gulped at least 2-3 glasses of water…
And still I totally adore itJ

Here in Singapore, we have a “Little Thailand” in Golden Mile Tower
You get almost all Thai ingredients and snacks there and they have some amazing Thai restaurants as well.
The freshest basil, lemon grass, galangal ,thai brinjals ..you name the Thai ingredients …its there!!

Last week we went down there for the dinner and I had hell lot of thai delights till I criedJ
I also managed to pick a lot of Thai ingredients.
So stay tuned to some spicy Thai cuisine!!
