The Thai fish cakes, known in  Realm of Siam as ‘Tod Man Pla’, is a very traditional type finger food.
Captivated by the aroma and their catchy red and golden color.
First the enchanting kaffir lime leaves aroma will strike you, then the red curry flavor will finish to win you over… Definitely a must-try!

Thais like them chewy, accompanied with sour vegetable and dipped in a sweet and sour dipping sauce.
