Morning Glory Thai

Unlike the Chinese variety which only grows in soil, the Thai morning glory can grow in both soil and water and can grow up to 2-3 metres tall. The stem of Thai morning glory is thicker in diameter than the Chinese and offers a much crunchier texture. The Thais usually stir-fry them with chillies, or use them to garnish curries and noodle dishes such as Gaeng Som, Gaeng Te-Po and Yen Ta Fo.
