Easy and Yummy "Fried Fish with Sweet and Sour Sauce(Pla Priaw Wan)" Recipe

Cooking Thai stir-fried dishes is very easy. The ingredients are also very adaptable, depending on what are available in the kitchen. The rich variety of Thai-stir-frying recipes offers a wide range of tasty dishes that can be enjoyed at every meal without repeating the same ones. Wonderfully created, Thai stir-frying easily becomes an exciting cooking adventure. A basic cooking utensil is a frying pan. Any kind of pans are used: flat bottom, deep bottom, cast iron or non-stick ones.

The essential ingredient is cooking oil, which should be well selected as it is important to our health and flavor. Chicken, beef or pork stock is suggested for cooking. Vegetable stock or even water, however, remains an excellent choice. The more fresh ingredients are, the better taste the food provides. Enjoy :)
