In English, it's called farm frog.
In Cantonese, it is 'tin kai'.
In Mandarine, 'tian chi'
In Bahasa Melayu, Malay language, katak is frog.
And... just learnt that frog is called 'tavale' in Tamil.

But this is not a language frblog, so let me continue with the food.

Since for many weeks a few months ago, I have been eating frogs every single week without fail. Taste like chicken ;p

My mom started to make ginseng soup using frogs instead of chicken or pork. Much lesser oil, but much sweeter.
