Son-in-law (kai look keuy, ไข่ลูกเขย) eggs are a traditional Thai dish, created with hard boiled eggs, which are then coated in flour and fried, served with sweet tamarind sauce, crispy shallots and dried chillies. This dish has an interesting origin, about a mother in law who didn’t like the way her daughter was treated by her husband. She then served him these eggs as a warning, a steep price he would pay if he continued mistreating her daughter.

The son in law eggs were cooked well, with the crispy outer layer giving it a nice umami bite. The sweetness from the tamarind sauce was a little too sweet, but is somewhat counterbalanced by the pungent fried shallots. This little dish makes quite a nice side snack.
