The delicious Khao Mok Kai originates from the South of Thailand. The Muslim inspired interpretation of chicken and rice is often better known as Thai Chicken Biryani or yellow rice with curry chicken. It brings together the unique taste of some better known Indian spices including curry powder and turmeric. Khao Mok Kai comes served with an unmistakably Thai green chili dip and if lucky sprinkles of crispy onions.
As a curry and spice lover the flavoursome Khao Mok Kai tops my ‘to eat’ list at Bangkok’s cheap eat food courts (Tesco food court pictured). One of few places to find as Bangkok street food is Sampeng near Little India. Pay around 40 baht.
