If you go to Thai Restaurants sometimes they have 2 menus that almost are the same name they are “Pad Khing” and another one is “ Pad prik khing”. They both are totally different. When I was the server I had to explain it a lot of times about this dish and now I will tell you again just in case you never knew about it. Actually this name is confusing for Thai people too because “Khing” means ginger, but one of them it does not have anything to do with ginger at all and that dish is “ Pad Prik Khing” is a stir fried green bean with red curry paste and meat, but the one I will cook today is “Pad Khing” .
Pad Khing is stirred fried chicken or pork with ginger mushrooms. For this dish it is very healthy. Because ginger is one of the good herb that will help with digestion, removing toxins from the body, cleansing the bowels and kidneys. So this dish I would recommend for breast feeding moms to eat it in order to pass through the goodness of ginger to the baby for helping the baby’s digestion. (I had a lot of this dish when I was breast feeding). Now do you want to know the recipe. Here it is.
