Bean Sprout: Thai name is Thua Ngok

Most often used of bean sprouts in Thai cooking are the small “green” sprouts from mung beans and the larger “yellow” sprouts from soya beans. Soya beansprouts have a stronger flavour than mung beansprouts, but both are relatively delicate, with a pleasant and unique crunchy texture. Fresh beansprouts are widely available in supermarkets, health-food stores and Asian food stores, or you can easily sprout your own beans at home. Avoid canned beansprouts as they are flaccid and tasteless.
