Every street restaurant table in Bangkok has this little basket of condiments called Khreuang Puang.

This basket usually contains 4 key ingredients – sugar (naam tam sai), fish sauce (naam plaa), chilli powder (phrik pon) and fresh chillies in vinegar (phrik dong). There are the most common but there can be other variations also.

Everyone has their own way of using them and their own ratio to mix these and put them over a plate of noodles. And Thai food isn’t quite the same without this little basket 🙂
