Frogs at the Market

I went out this morning for a bowl of rice porridge, which you may know as congee, or in Thailand, jok moo. I don’t know if this is an acquired taste, or just a dish that I have come to appreciate, but it is quite good. I forgot to take a photo with the spoonful of dried chili that I mixed in with it, but you see here the jok, ground pork balls (that’s the moo), a soft-boiled egg, green onions, shredded ginger, and some fried dough.

And then I walked through the market and saw this bucket of frogs. You will have seen the small fried frogs that one eats whole — I wrote about this delicacy previously. For the larger frogs, stewing or frying would be the preferred cooking method.
