This menu called "Pad Prik Khing" in Thai. As I mention to an earlier article (Nam Prik Ong) that if you see Thai word "Prik", it means chili and hot spicy flavor. So, this dish gets spicy flavor from ginger itself and fresh sliced chili or serano or choices of other spicy you prefer. How spicy you would like, it depend on how many fresh chili you put on the pan; you put more if your love hot spicy flavor or put less if you prefer mild spicy flavor.
The main ingredients of this menu is ginger or we called "Khing" in Thai. Ginger has a healthy benefit include relieving nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness, and pain. I make this dish more often for my first trimester of pregnancy, it helps me with nausea feeling and this menu is the only menu that I can eat with no feeling of sickness or nausea.
Ginger root has a spicy taste but unlike spicy from chili, they are have different taste of spicy flavor. If you prefer to only have ginger spicy flavor, you can skip chili for this dish and use red bell pepper instead. Red bell pepper have the sweetness spicy and it could make this dish have different flavor but if your prefer this flavor, try and go for it. There is nothing wrong to change flavor the way you like to enjoy the meal.
When you choose ginger from grocery store, make sure you get the most fresh one as possible.
