Pork Tender Loin with Ma Kaam and Peanuts


Pork tender loin lends itself to what is known as the Indian date or Ma Kaam in Thai. In the west tamarind is found in Worcester sauce. Petchaboon in northern Thailand honours this fruit with a yearly festival from January 17th to 25th when farmers sell their ware at local markets. Some Hindus may marry a tamarind tree to a mango tree before eating its fruit! Peanuts add texture and lime brings out the full sourness of the dish. Recipe on its way!
