Favorite Thai Foods – Crispy Fried Morning Glory (Yum Pag Boong Grob)
Fried Morning Glory (said "yum pag boong grob" in Thai) is a very tasty addition to a Thai meal and one of my favorite. They take morning glory and dip it in a light tempura batter and deep fried in a wok until crispy brown. This is served with a spicy mixture of browned chili, ground pork, red onion, tomato, lime juice and fish sauce. The fried morning glory is placed on your plate and broken up into bite size pieces on your plate and the spicy mixture is spooned on to taste. This dish is quite tasty and spicy. I recommend it to any one daring enough to eat spicy Thai dishes.
