Gaeng Hung Lay is one of the most iconic dishes of Northern Thailand, and arguably one of the tastiest! Pork belly and pork ribs are slowly stewed in a WHOLE bunch of herbs and spices. The result is tender fatty pieces of pork that has been entirely permeated by the rich and aromatic sauce. It is a dish to impress, and though it takes time, most of the process is hands-off!
This dish came to Northern Thailand via Myanmar, which in turn has a lot of Indian influences on their cuisine. This is why there is a lot of spices in this recipe, and you can use Indian garam masala for it as well!
