Son-in-law Eggs

my chillies harvest
Do not be put off by the name...this dish is truly delicious and easy to make.

The story goes that when a young man is being less
than kind to his wife, and then on a regular visit to his mother-in-law, she
will give him a salutory reminder that his behaviour has been noted by
serving this dish. The message is plain, straighten up and fly right, or his
wedding tackle will take the place of the similarly sized eggs in a dish of
khai luk koei (ouch!)

................................................ interesting anecdote from BellaOnline
