Miang Kham, one bite

My holidays usually have a strong tendency to be a parallel search for new tastes and recipes, and this last one in Thailand has not been different.

There has been one dish that has impressed me the most and it was Miang Kham.

This is not really a recipe, but a collection of ingredients that you wrap together in a leaf, like a small package
