Cucumbers

Cucumbers appear in many Thai recipes, and on the sides of many other dishes. The reason, in part, is due to the cucumber’s admirable ability to sooth the sting of hot chilies. As every Thai knows, if you get a bit too much chili on your tongue, nothing will take away the heat faster than a slice of cucumber, although I should probably note that alcohol is also a well known ‘cure’.
