VINCETABLET - W8 20151126124200

This is green curry which makes a suitable replacement for red. On the right is jai bong

Translated literally : fried fat... but tastes more like the best meatballs ever. This is uncle George's variation which I had found more tender than moms/grandmas which is made from beef. Mom's version is here: spicy meatballs . This is very good with sticky rice !!!
