Saute Spinach with Garlic and Chilies
Another easy vegetable dish to accommodate heavy dish such as meat or fish dishes. It barely takes 5 minutes to get done.
My mother in law made this dish when we were back in Thailand in 2010. She used the same technique using for Flame Water Spinach, and it's delicious.
I am so happy with this dish, it means that, from now on, I don't have to crack up a fortune cookie to see if I would get the water spinach from the market in any days, when my crave for Pak Boong Fai Dang kicks in, just grab a bag of fresh spinach, and throw them in a hot wok for two minutes, I'll definitely have my resembled Pak Boong Fai Dang to enjoy with.
