Gaeng som with fish eggs

Gaeng som (แกงส้ม) is a popular curry in Thailand.  It is often described in English as sour fish curry, which describes it pretty well.  It is usually served with shrimp or fish as the designated meat and a large collection of vegetables.  Often an omelet with a Thai vegetable called cha-om is added for extra taste.  The version pictured here is a bit more of a northeastern street style.  A bit more basic, but also a bit more exotic.  In place of the shrimp we have lots of fish eggs.  You can see them floating all along the broth while large clumps sit in the spoon.  Tasty, but I still prefer the usual version with the cha-om omelet.


Check out them fish eggs!
