Thai Fried Rice
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Thailand
  • 2 cups cooked rice (I used brown basmati, jasmine would be traditional) - using cold rice from the day before is best
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 green onions
  • pinch ground pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1 chicken breast chopped
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 thinly sliced tomato
  • 3 tablespoon cooking oil
  1. Prep all your ingredients before you start.
  2. Heat oil in a large pan or wok on high heat.
  3. Add garlic and stir then add meat if uncooked and continue to stir.
  4. When the meat is cooked, add the rice. Break up any clumps and coat with the oil. If you are using cooked meat, add it now.
  5. Stir in the fish sauce and soy sauce.
  6. Add the white parts of the green onion and the tomato slices.
  7. Push the rice mixture to the side of the pan and turn down the heat.
  8. Cook the scrambled eggs on the open side of the pan.
  9. Once the eggs are dry, break them up and mix them in with the rice.
  10. Remove the pan from heat. Top the rice or individual bowls of rice with fresh lime juice, pepper and green onions.
  11. It is often served with cucumber slices, tomato slices, lime, chili fish sauce, and cilantro.
