Indispensible to Thai cuisine, lime serves as the key ingredient for adding sourness to almost all Thai dishes whether they are noodles, soups, chilli paste, curries or even stir-fried rice. Its sharp acidity can be found in most famous Thai dishes including Som Tam (papaya salad), Tom Yum Goong, Larb, and even drizzled over Phad Thai. Limes can also be chopped, with the peel intact, into little dice pieces and served with Miang Kham. How about cocktails? Well, nothing can quench your thirst better than a glass of lime juice soda – a must try!
