Spicy Chicken and Basil Fried Rice (Thai)
Originally uploaded by Soma.R
In Thai, khao means "rice" and pad means "of or relating to being stir-fried". This dish differs from Chinese fried rice is that it is prepared with Thai Jasmine rice instead of regular long-grain rice. It normally contains a meat (chicken, shrimp, and crab are all common), egg, onions, and tomatoes. Green onions, coriander, and fried garlic are then mixed in. Then seasonings are stirred in, which may include soy sauce, sugar, salt, possibly some chili sauce, and the ubiquitous nam pla (fish sauce). Then the dish is plated and served with accompaniments like cucumber slices, tomato slices, lime and sprigs of green onion.
