Khai Yiao Maa Kra Pao Krop

Rice with Century Eggs & Crispy Basil Leaves

Khai Yiao Maa, literally meaning horse urine eggs, is what Thais call their century eggs. I seriously don’t think that century eggs are made by dunking eggs in horse urine, but it would be interesting to look up the origins of the naming. This was one of the latest dishes discovered in the Ram II neighbourhood before we moved out of it. This visually inviting dish is comprised of crispy fried basil leaves, pieces of century egg stir fried with pork and some corn, carrots and long beans. Lovely.
