Chiang Mai Mock Chicken Curry
Chiang Mai Curry is a northern curry usually made using pork. The curry is somewhat similar to that of yellow or massaman curry but of a thinner consistency; it also uses shredded ginger and does not use coconut milk. It is popular as a street dish eaten by Thai people in northern Thailand, though not frequently served in Thai restaurants abroad.
