Thai Chicken Ginger (Kai Pad King)

I don’t know much about Thai food, but once we went to cultural event and there were some food testing from different countries, including Thailand. A lady served a very good chicken ginger called ‘KAI PAD KING’. Next day I did some search how to make it and I DID it!  It tastes delicious, but I am warning you it’s also spicy 😀

2 cloves of garlic

200 g fresh champignon mushroom

1 big red chillies, seeded and sliced
