Every Friday from now onwards I will be sharing with you what we eat at lunchtime. Well, at least some pictures. I have had so many letters from people asking if we can feature some of the street food from Paknam. So, hopefully this will be the first of a regular series of food blogs showing some of the cheap and delicious food that we can buy here. The first dish on the table was a variation of my favourite. I like chicken and bamboo shoots in green curry a lot. However this is a yellow version using turmeric powder.

Always a good idea to have a dish of stir-fried vegetables. This one comes with fresh shrimp. So many variations. To get the bright colours, a good tip is to dip into boiling water for one minute before stir frying.

The final dish is vegetarian and is a mixture of bean curd and mushrooms. There are several stir fried dishes that use bean curd and they are quite easy to cook yourself.
A very delicious and cheap meal. Now, I wonder what we will buy for our lunch next Friday. If you want to know, then just come back next Friday to see! All of the food seen here was bought in Paknam at stalls on the street.
