Nam Prik Pla Too

This is one we eat often and is the easiest to make at home! you will need to fry most of the ingredients and use a pestle and mortar for some beating but you can buy most of the items readily at a local convenience store. If you are in Bangkok then you can try a really well made Nam Prik Pla Too in the Sit and Wonder restaurant by Thonglor.
