This is the fifth recipe from my SPRING SOUP series.
I fell into a burnin’ ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher,
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.
Johnny Cash seemed to be cheering for us on that last Sunday dinner then, when we had to chow down on these very spicy duck red curry and prawn-vegetables stir fry.
“Is it really hot in here, or is it just me?” saying jokingly to my dinner buddy when we saw burning cheeks and sweat coming out on our faces. Given I’m Asian, he looked more “burned” than I did. It felt like the house is burning down as we see other Thai dishes flying around that looked as spicy as ours.
I love spicy food, that’s why I also like Thai cuisines. My tolerance for hot stuff is really good, quite at par to confidently say so. That night though, it was spiciness at its finest.
