Another great recipe from Thai Food by David Thompson with a few small changes to the cooking method made by myself. A really sweet dish that should be offset by serving with other sour dishes. Note that you should use 3 whole coriander stems for the recipe, use the leaves to garnish and the roots for the paste. I deep-fried my own fresh shallots but they can already be purchased fried as well. I used the dried granular palm sugar, the original recipe called for 2 cups of natural palm sugar.
