Thai fried rice is a lovely recipe of Thai cuisine. In Thai, khao means “rice” and phat means “stir fried”. This dish differs from Chinese fried rice in that it is prepared with Thai jasmine rice instead of regular long-grain rice. It normally contains meat (chicken, shrimp, and crab), eggs, onions, garlic and sometimes different vegetables. The seasonings, which may include soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, salt, some chili sauce if you want, and the nam pla(fish sauce), are stir-fried together with the other ingredients. The dish is then plated and served with accompaniments like cucumber slices, tomato slices, lime and sprigs of green onions and coriander.
I am serving these rice today with Thai Cashew Chicken ,so making this recipe slightly different than original and not adding any meat in it. You can add meat in it if you want.
Along with the fried rice itself, the most essential component of this Thai fried rice recipe is a condiment known as prik nam pla (Fish sauce with chilies)
No matter what Thai street food restaurant you eat at, you’ll always find this delicious condiment on your table. Prik nam pla (chilies and fish sauce) is chopped chilies mixed with fish sauce and some squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
So do try this recipe and give your feed backs.
