Kai Leuk Kuey or Son-in-Law Egg

The name sounds alluring? Well, as per Thai legend Mother – in – Law invites Son-in-Law wanting to punish for illtreating her daughter and she offers spicy,tangy,sweet taste eggs. Son-in-Law understands that there is a hidden meaning to this egg and he becomes careful. Well, whatever be the legend, the Egg salad that is made in Thailand is a major hit amongst adult and kids and it’s very healthy.
