Another classic Thai dish - Thai jungle curry or Gang Pa, that is very tasty and healthy. This is a well-known dish from the mountain city of Chiang Mai. It is originally made with ingredients found in the jungles of Thailand. It's a water based curry (no coconut milk) so that is why it's called Jungle curry as you can't find coconuts in the jungle!
