Kueh Pie Tee (Top Hats)

CC license

 

Special equipment:

1 ( or more) Pie Tee mould(s).


There are a number of wonderful fillings recipes for Pie Tee's but there's not so much variation between them. Often the difference is proportion between ingredients or a substitute veg or seafood ingredient. There is nothing inherently preventing any suitable ingredient from being used as a filling or topping for Pie Tee's. I have previously placed a recipe for Cilantro Oil and seafood as a filling for Pie Tee.

You could easily create a filli...

Crab Fried Rice (Khao Phad Phu)

Posted by Kroocrew on Wednesday, August 19, 2009, In : Thailand 

 
A very flavoursome fried Rice.  
Crab meat adds a savoury flavour beyond anything else for fried rice. It can dress up a fried rice dish to make it really a sensational flavour.  
 
Ingredients other than some crab meat and rice is not important. Onion type vegetables are always good with rice as a savoury element. The addition of a little butter to the oil in the wok is also a flavour enhancer. The oil type is purely a convenience aspect and because it's the crab that is the main flavourant th...
