Thai food is often associated with its spicy taste.
Hence, it is no surprise that a chilli dip competition is currently being held for a week in Trat, Thailand.
One of the main ingredients that are required to be used by all participants is shrimp paste, which gives the condiment a distinctively salty taste.
Participants would pound all ingredients together using a mortar and pestle.
They were not only judged based on the flavour of their dip but on their “performance” and dance steps incorporated while preparing their condiment.
