Gai Tod - One Of Many Thai Recipes To Keep Close To Your Heart ...

Gai Tod is Thai Style Deep Fried Chicken that invoke memories of Thai food from my hometown ... Originally from Hatyai, I will always remember this Southern Fried Chicken dish from my childhood days.

Thai Food Lovers

Through the years, I have experimented with many versions of Thai style fried chicken but my deep fried garlic pepper chicken wings are always a favorite amongst families and friends.

Done properly, you will find that the flavor is tasty and "finger licking good" and we Thais love to take this dish with small balls of warm sticky rice and it complements well with the "yum" dishes like larb gai etc....

It is especially popular with the young people.
