I will categorize some of Thai herbs and spices widely used in Thai cooking in 2 groups; fresh herbs and dried spices.Fresh herbsĀ are aromatic plants which are naturally scented when it is fresh. The fragrant smell usually fades when dried out. Fresh herbs are Thai basil, holy basil, lemon basil, ginger, galangal, shallots, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, spearmint, coriander roots, garlic, chilies, lesser ginger and turmeric. These Thai herbs and spices are extensively used as fresh in curry pastes, curry dishes, Thai salads and stir fries.Dried spicesĀ are slightly scented when dried out but will have a stronger smell when heated up. Dried spices are often dry roasted before cooking as the heat will emit the scents. Typical dried spices include cinnamon powder, coriander seed, cardamom, mace powder, star anise, bay leaves, black peppercorns and cloves.These Thai herbs and spices are often used for making curry pastes and soups and often have medicinal benefits.
