    Default Thai food vs Chinese food

    For a few months now, I am totally hooked on to Thai food. It is very similar to indian food with masalas and coconut milk minus all the oil and much healthier. It think it is far far better than chinese food. I wonder why it has not caught on in india as compared to chinese. What do u think?

    The only Thai food I have liked is rice with thai red curry and it is a killer with too much chillies in it... Its good once in a while but I find thai food to be a bit too hot...

    this maybe cause there is still a touch of indian tastes in the dishes.

    But when you go to proper restaurants that's where you may find the difference.

    Im not good on this, but what exactly is the difference in chinese and thai food! I suppose it may be something when we are compared bengali food to punjabi food!

    Preeti,
    Thai food and Chinese food are very different. To make it
    very simple (I am generalizing two great cuisines)

    Chinese food has mainly soy sauce (plus ginger, garlic, red chillies etc) and
    Thai food has mainly coconut milk (plus lemongrass, galangal, green chilli etc.)

    Both are tasty


    Some Chinese items are chowmein, kung-pao, mandarin, hunan etc.
    Some Thai items are Pad-Thai, green/red/yellow curry, Mussuman etc.

    -F

    I had authentic chinese when i went to shanghai. Its important to remember that china has different regions with different foods. For example, Cantonese food is very sweet (similar to gujarati food) while schezwan food is very hot and spicy with lots of chillies. so chinese too has variations.

    My fav Thai food is something called "jungle curry". It is brown in colour and has taste very similar to indian masala. I found thai better than chinese.

    Another thing, the hotness of thai food should have made it more palatable to indians compared to chinese.

    The real chineese food cannot be eaten my most of us. as most of thier food is streamed and raw. for Indians its tasteless as we are used to eating masala food.


    And also, they eat lot of non-veg dishes. so veggies beware.

    Infact, the fact it is steamed and raw makes it healthier than the chinese which we eat in India, which has Agino moto. This is known to affect the brain and has been banned in most countries except india.
