Hot and sour fried tripe (tripe recipe from Thailand)


2 pounds of tripe
5 shallots
3 cloves of garlic
5 fresh hot green or red chilies
1/3 cup of tamarind water
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
1.5 teaspoon of salt
2 salam leaves
1 cup of vegetable oil


Put the tripe into a large saucepan with the shallots, garlic and chilies. To the tamarind water add the ground ginger, coriander, a pinch of lemon grass if using the sugar and salt. Pour the mixture over the tripe. Add the salam or bay leaves and simmer the tripe for 30 minutes. Let the tripe cool in the cooking liquid. When cool, remove and drain the tripe. Pick off the pieces of shallot and garlic and brush away any pieces of herbs. Cut the tripe into small squares and pat them dry. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan and fry the tripe squares, a few at a time, until brown about three minutes.
