Must-Have Thai Recipe Apps to Create Authentic Dishes
Use apps not only to learn about authentic Thai recipes, but let apps also teach you about the ingredients you’ll need and cooking methods used in Thai cuisine.
The first step to creating authentic and delicious Thai food is knowing what ingredients are commonly used and how to find them. There are some great cooking apps like BigOven that can help you write a grocery list after you have decided on a recipe or general cuisine. Thai food ingredients consist of a lot of fresh items like chilies, garlic, lime, and galangal. Galangal is related to ginger but not as strong. It might not be the easiest thing to find so you can get an app that lets you know where the closest Asian market store is to buy Thai ingredients. While you are there, you might also want to pick up some Thai herbs and vegetables that you might not be too familiar with such as water spinach, kaffir lime leaves, green peppercorns, and lemongrass. You can also download a cooking app that will show you the Thai vegetables names with pictures so you can identify them when you’re at the store.
Next thing to learn after you have your ingredients is basic Thai cooking techniques. Most Thai dishes are cooked under the methods of steaming, grilling, stir-frying, and deep-frying. You can find cooking apps that give you step by step tutorials on how to use these methods at home. Apps like Yummly feature videos to help you visualize the method you are about to try as well as tips from other users that have tried the same tutorial. To be able to execute these cooking methods you need to make sure you have equipment used in Thai cuisine like a wok which is pretty essential in Thai cooking.
Now that you have the skills to cook and the ingredients needed, it's time to pull out your phone and pick the Thai recipe you have been wanting to make. There are great options for apps to help you find Thai food recipes. Many apps make it easy by letting you filter what type of cuisine you want to cook, whether you want to cook with seafood, chicken, or vegetarian, and the level of difficulty in cooking the dish. These filters are great for letting you save time and get you straight to the recipe you are after. Let’s say you want to learn the famous pad Thai step by step in a tutorial so you know what ingredients to add at the different stages of building the dish. Pad Thai isn’t too difficult as long as you know the process. Additionally, using apps like Side Chef are perfect for step by step guides. Healthy Thai recipes are really easy to learn as well if you are watching what you eat. You can find some great Thai salad recipes to make that are easy to prepare. If it’s a cold night and you want to make a spicy curry, then find a recipe for Panang curry on an app that has the best ratings. If the recipe has high ratings it's a pretty sure bet you will be eating delicious food and staying warm that evening.
