       Thai Sour Curry AKA (Kaeng Som – แกงส้ม)


Thai Sour Curry aka (Kaeng Som) is a delicious and mouthwatering Thai dish that has a blend of sweetness, spiciness, sourness, and creaminess. This dish originated from the time when Thailand was invaded by Burma. Kaeng Som is elementary easy to conjure up, whether you are a professional or an amateur cook, you will be able to cook this dish with little to no effort. In Thailand, you will find many variations of Thai Sour Curry or Kaeng Som throughout five star restaurants to food carts. Honestly. my favorite kind and the variation that I would like to recommend all of my committed viewers is "Southern Thai Kaeng Som", the reason that I recommend this is because it's more creamy, spicy, fresh , and overall more delicious. "Thai Sour Curry" aka "Kaeng Som" is probably one of the spiciest Thai soup there is, however, the taste can be adjusted according to the person's preference. Statically, the best place to buy or get this dish is Thailand which is the origin, however, there is a place in the United States of America where you can get this spicy, but mouthwatering dish.The name of this place is "Sea Siam Restaurant". Genuinely. this place makes the best Thai Sour Curry that ever tasted in America before. For  all of you who are interested, below are the ingredients and instructions on how to cook this dish.
