Just getting ready to make a chicken panang curry for dinner. As I gathered the ingredients, I thought when we go to Som Sak (Our favorite Thai Restaurant it’s in Voorhees) I always order my meal 3 stars hot, while Lydia orders hers 2 stars. So, I looked through my chile powders & hot sauces & decided I’d add some chile de arbol to my curry to get me my extra star. I have a little bit of our habanero mash, that I keep handy in my fridge for those days that I really need some fire, but I thought it might be a bit overpowering for the panang. Well all this thought of spiciness, got me thinking the level of heat at the restaurants & thought why not feature a dish or two each month that have a little extra kick to them.
