Galam Plee Pad Nampla
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with W and IZ
Galam Plee Pad Nampla is a Thai dish. Simply chopped green/white cabbage (galam plee), stir-fried (pad) in oil with garlic + fish sauce (nampla). Served as a side.
The fourth dish inspired by a video on Hot Thai Kitchen (see Garlicky Cabbage & Fish Sauce Side Dish). Recalling a similar dish at the Hunanese restaurant Fuyuan in Manila (see 10.258 Fried Fish in Special Sauce), which I’d attempted to recreate at home (see 11.010 Stir-Fried Chili Cabbage), I added sliced chilies to Chef Pailin’s recipe.
Meh. It might work for someone who really likes fish sauce, but I found it kinda fishy.
