The best part of Thai and Akha food is using all fresh ingredients. There are various types of fresh vegetables…
When it comes to Thai and Akha cooking, there are many cooking ingredients that those from overseas may have never even heard of or seen in their lives.
For example, Kaffir Lime or Makrut is one of the essential Thai and Akha ingredients. The green, bumpy skin fruit looks like a lime, and its leaf used for Thai and Akha cooking.
Often many people asked If I can’t get Kaffir Lime. Can I use normal lime? The answer is NO. If you can’t get the Kaffir Lime better skipped it then tries to replace it with regular lime. However, if the recipes call for Kaffir Lime skin which comes from the bumpy kaffir lime fruit, and the fruit is not available. You can use a Kaffir Lime leaf instead. It is very common that overseas supermarkets only available the leaves due to imported rule.
