Kaeng Liang – Breast Milk Booster Shrimp & Veggie Soup! แกงเลียง | Thai Recipes
Many people have asked whether there is a dish in Thai culture that pregnant and new mothers are encouraged to eat. And this is it!
Kaeng Liang or Gaeng Liang is a peppery, yummy vegetable soup believed to help boost breast milk supply in Thai culture. But it’s not something that is reserved only for new moms—anybody can enjoy it at any time, but new moms are especially encouraged to eat more of it. This is a dish I grew up eating, and my grandmother makes it quite often because my mom loves it. It’s also popular amongst the health conscious because it’s full of nutritious vegetables!
