This is another Thai dish that is exceptionally good. Some of the tips for Thai cooking are as follows: 1, To tone down a dish that is too spicy, add coconut milk or plain yogurt. A little sugar may also diminish some of the heat. 2. To tone down a dish that is too salty, add lime juice, or lemon juice. 3. When you find a dish not salty enough, add fish sauce instead of salt or soy sauce if you are vegetarian. This way you will get more flavor as well as the saltiness you're seeking. 4. To sweeten, Thai dishes, you can use plain white sugar, although brown sugar is closer to the rock sugar most Asian chefs use. 5. If you find your dish not sour enough, a little lime juice, or tamarind water will suffice nicely (a small amount of tamarind paste mixed in water). 6. Not spicy enough? That's easy! add more fresh (or dried) chiles, cayenne pepper, chili powder or a tsp. of Thai chili sauce.
