Ancient Cookbook Recipe Experiment! Galloping Horses ม้าฮ่อ Hot Thai Kitchen

Posted: Friday, May 19, 2017

SPECIAL episode! Join me as a try this ancient recipe live for the first time! This recipe is also an exploration into Thai history. Here’s the story: A lovely HTK fan recently sent me a copy of a very special Thai cookbook: The very first Thai cookbook to ever be written in English!

So, I wanted to cook a recipe from this book, and I wanted to do it “live” along with you guys! This gorgeous dish is called “Ma Haw” or translated as “galloping horses”, and it is a bite-size appetizer that’s not easy to find nowadays. So exciting to be going back in time a bit!
