Hang le is also referred to as Hang le Mon and Hang le Chiangsaen as its origin is from Burma where it is called “hin le” or “han le,” which is the same as “kaeng ho” of the Lanna people. The Burmese call the Lanna hange le “war ta hin” (pork curry). The Chiangsaen style requires additional ingredients like yard long beans, eggplants, fresh chilies, pickled bamboo shoots and roasted white sesame seeds.

Tips on cooking
Use a low fire when frying curry paste.
Santhon can be used instead of tamarind juice as it is also sour and produces a nice aroma.
Pork belly should not have too much fat on it. Pork ribs are good to use, too.
