Rainbow Rice Salad Recipe – Khao Yum ข้าวยำ – Thai Recipes

38
133



Kao Yum, or Khao Yum, is a specialty of Southern Thai cuisine that has become popular in Bangkok in recent years because of the healthy, clean eating trend! This dish is similar to the Malay nasi kerabu, and in fact, many Southern Thai dishes have Malay roots.

In this video I also show you how to make natural blue food colouring! The rice is often dyed blue for Khao Yum, although you can most certainly use plain white rice, OR dye the rice a different colour such as yellow (turmeric or saffron) or pink (beets). The dressing, or what we call “nam budu” is the most important part: it’s sweet, salty, umami and is key to the unique flavour of this salad. And yes, you can make the dressing in advance and keep it in your fridge for many weeks!

Choice of accompaniments around the rice are flexible, but there are some must-haves. I will include the list of these options in the written recipe on the website!

  2. Hi Pailin…I'd like to know what kind of dressing that normally are serve on salads at the Thai restaurant? Like it has a yellowish color that kind has a honey mustard taste with some other kind of mixture. When I mean salads, just your normal mixture that are usual included in lunch specials.

  3. Hi. This is my first time posting. Thank you for sharing the recipe of Nasi Kerabu. I had it in your hometown Hat Yai and in Kota Bharu. I fell in love with the taste of it. I know the ingredient for the coloring, but I did not how to do it. Well keep up the good work, and I look forward to many more to come!
