I have a recipe that calls for Thai white pepper. I have regular white pepper. Can I just use regular white pepper, or is there a flavor difference?
Sam is a trusted home cook.
Yes just white pepper.
In Asian cooking. I'm a big fan of Sansyo, Japaneese white pepper. Which might the same thing for 'thai' white pepper.
White pepper is hot, which goes with the thai cooking recipes. So, I would guess that normal 'white pepper' is what intended. (use in small amounts IMHO).
The Sansyo is both hot and numbing, it's from the same plant as schezuan peppercorns, but much milder. It's not as hot in flavor as common white pepper.
And this is why we experiment and explore. Adjust recipes to your tastes and flavors.
