I love this food!! I used to offer my husband to try it but he didn’t like to taste anything new.. haha so I enjoyed this food by myself. It’s good when my husband likes different food, or we will fight until the food is gone into someone’s stomach. 😛 This recipe is quite new as I have never seen it anywhere else in Thailand except in the southern provinces.
When I first saw it at Aunt Aun Kitchen, my favorite restaurant, I thought maybe this food would be salty but actually it was not. The pickled mustard is sour and hot taste from black pepper is awesome. 🙂 Fat from fish is also what I want!! Haha.
There are many new creative recipes from Aunt Aun Kitchen that I have never seen before. Promise that I will take a peak (taste it too haha) and will share the recipe here.
Mostly southern people cook pickled mustard with egg and serve it with boiled rice. I never have that with boiled rice back at home in Sisaket. So I think this must be southern style.
