What is suki hang

Suki hang is a traditional Thai noodle dish, inspired by the Japanese hotpot, Sukiyaki. It’s a stir-fry combining glass noodles with a mix of proteins, vegetables, and a distinctive spicy suki sauce.

Pad suki haeng is one of those noodle dishes you just can’t miss out on. It’s a little salty, a touch sweet, and perfectly spicy – everything we love about Thai street food.

It might not be as famous as everyone’s beloved Pad Thai, but once you try it, you’ll wonder why you didn’t sooner.

History of suki haeng

Thai suki stir-fry all started with the classic Japanese sukiyaki hot pot. Thai people gave the hot pot broth a zesty twist with a spicy red sauce that’s a nod to our love for all things fiery.

We called it ‘suki’, and we’re totally obsessed!

This cozy suki hot pot then transformed into a beloved noodle soup, because in Thailand noodle soups are a way of life, with stands found at every street corner.

The real magic happened when the soup went dry and became ‘suki hang’ or ‘dry suki’. It’s a dish you’ll taste and come to love in this Thai suki hang recipe.

These days, Thailand is filled with suki restaurants, dishing out both comforting hot pots and stir-fried noodles.

Thai suki noodles

  • Chicken, shrimp, squid – Each protein brings its own flavor and texture. Feel free to mix it up with your favorites.
  • Morning glory, Chinese cabbage, carrot, green onion – My choice of crunchy stir-fry vegetables. Again, feel free to customize with others, like broccoli or mushrooms.
  • Glass noodles – Glass noodles, also known as cellophane noodles, are typically used in Southeast Asian food. They’re a neutral-flavored, translucent noodle made from starch that cooks quickly, making it perfect for stir-fries, soups, and salads. You can get them online or at any Asian grocery store.
  • Garlic
  • Egg – Egg coats the noodles and veggies, acting as a rich binder.
  • Oil – Use a neutral flavored oil like sunflower oil or canola oil.

Suki sauce

  • Chilies – I used Thai Jinda chilies, you can use bird’s eye chilies or milder chilies instead. Add to taste.
  • Garlic – Garlic deepens the flavor profile with richness and aroma.
  • Fermented bean curd – Fermented bean curd, also known as ‘taohu yee’ in Thai, is a type of preserved tofu. It’s made by fermenting fresh bean curd with salt, rice wine, and other flavorings. It’s known for its strong and savory flavor, often used in Asian sauces.
  • Coriander root – Coriander root adds an earthy, fresh flavor to the sauce.
  • Sesame oil + sesame seeds
  • White vinegar – Adds a sharp tang that balances out the other flavors.
  • Chili sauce – Use a store-bought sauce like sriracha, or try my homemade Thai hot sauce recipe.
  • Water – Meld the ingredients into a sauce.
  • White sugar – A bit of sweetness is crucial for that perfect flavor balance of spicy, sweet, and tangy.
  • Salt
