Story Behind this Recipe

I love Khao Man Kai and I always eat it if I see it somewhere, but the flavor of the sauce changes depending on the restaurant and each one is delicious. So, I took various flavors from each one and made my own Thai style Tauchu sauce. It also goes great with pork shabu shabu or Bang Bang Chicken.
