As I’m sure you know, the world of Thai food is extremely diverse with so many different dishes and flavors to offer. When I’m strolling around Bangkok and I’m in the mood for something a little lighter and a healthy Thai food I sometimes choose a dish known as Thai suki (or sukiyaki). There are two different variations: suki nam (สุกี้น้ำ) and suki haeng (สุกี้แห้ง).

Suki nam (สุกี้น้ำ) is the soup version of Thai suki. The dish begins with a ladle of broth or water that’s initially boiled before adding a handful of fresh vegetables, whatever meat of choice you chose (I often like shrimp), glass noodles, a variety of sauces and light seasonings, and finally an egg on the top for extra protein. The suki is then boiled for just a few moments to cook everything perfectly and then added to a bowl before being served.

Suki haeng (สุกี้แห้ง) is virtually the same thing as suki nam, just it’s the dry version, so more of a stir fry instead of a soup. The same healthy ingredients are added and stir fried in a wok until fully cooked. It’s then served the same way. I like both versions.

Now most Thai people would eat suki plain without a side of rice, but since I love rice so much, I simply can barely handle eating a meal without rice, so I always get a plate of rice on the side and then eat my suki on top of the rice. So now that you know the main ingredients of what goes into Thai suki (สุกี้), there’s one more important thing to know about: the sauce – what I consider of utmost importance to the dish – it’s known in Thai as just suki sauce. The sauce is dark red like ketchup, but it’s packed with lots more flavor. The ingredient that makes it so red is normally some kind of tofu extract, the same ingredient used in Thai yen ta fo noodle soup (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1BDfokG6qY). A host of other ingredients are also added and finally a scoop of raw crushed garlic and fresh chopped chillies are added to create the perfect suki sauce with a kick.

So the next time you’re in the mood for a healthy Thai food that tastes great and isn’t greasy, make sure you order a bowl of Thai suki (สุกี้) in either soup or dry form – you’re going to love it!
