Thai Spicy Basil Chicken Fried Rice image

This is a staple of Thai cooking. Adjust the spices to your own tastes for a really great use for leftover rice!! I get the basil from a local Asian market. It has a different flavor than that of regular basil and makes all the difference in this recipe. It is fast and fairly easy to make, but requires constant stirring.

Categories     Food & Cooking     Ingredients     Pasta and Grains     Rice Recipes

Number Of Ingredients 11

2 tablespoons peanut oil
4 to 8 cloves garlic, minced (or more if not using optional ingredients)
1 to 2 ounces thinly sliced boneless pork (optional)
2 cups cold cooked rice (preferably Thai jasmine)
1 cup torn Asian greens (such as cabbage, mustard greens, or bok choy)
2 teaspoons Thai fish sauce, or to taste
1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves
6 thin cucumber slices
1 small scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced on the bias (optional)
2 lime wedges
1/4 cup Thai Fish Sauce with Hot Chiles


  • Heat a large heavy wok over high heat. When it is hot, add oil and heat until very hot. Add garlic and stir-fry until just golden, about 20 seconds. Add pork, if using, and cook, stirring constantly, until all the pork has changed color completely, about 1 minute.
  • Add rice, breaking it up with wet fingers as you toss it into wok. With your spatula, keep moving rice around wok. At first it may stick, but keep scooping and tossing it and soon it will be more manageable. Fry rice, sometimes pressing against wok with back of spatula. (Good fried rice should have a faint seared-in-the-wok taste.) Cook for about 30 seconds. Add greens, then fish sauce, and stir-fry for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Turn out onto a plate and garnish with coriander, cucumber slices, scallion, and lime wedges. Squeeze lime onto rice as you eat it, along with chile sauce -- the salty, hot taste of the sauce brings out the full flavor of the rice.


Thai Fried Rice image

This Thai fried rice is called American fried rice (Khao Pad American) in Thailand, because it uses ingredients that are considered American, like ketchup and bacon. It is very popular in Thailand and easy to make. All ingredients should be prepped in advance cause once you start frying the rice, it goes fast. If people are really hungry, you can serve a fried egg on top of the fried rice.

Time 40m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 16

6 slices bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large tomato, cubed
½ cup chopped fresh pineapple
5 cups cooked jasmine rice, cooled
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon white sugar
¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
3 eggs, beaten
½ cucumber, sliced
2 green onions, chopped
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime, cut into wedges
4 green Thai chile peppers


  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium heat and cook bacon until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain, reserving bacon grease in a bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons grease back into the skillet.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and cook garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomato and pineapple and stir-fry until warmed through, about 2 minutes.
  • Increase heat to high and add 1 tablespoon bacon grease. Add rice and stir-fry, breaking up with a spatula so it gets coated well with bacon grease. Cook for about 3 minutes. Season with ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, and white pepper.
  • Move rice mixture to one side of the skillet or wok and pour beaten eggs onto the empty side. Stir-fry until eggs are almost set, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix eggs with rice mixture. Fold in bacon bits. Serve with cucumber, green onions, cilantro, lemon wedges, and chile peppers.

Thai Combination Fried Rice image

This dish is loosely based on Thailand's ubiquitous fried rice dish, kao pad. Usually some kind of animal protein accompanies the rice - squid, crabmeat, ham, chicken, whatever the cook has on hand. My version relies instead on tofu and vegetables; the most important ingredients are the rice itself, the garlic and the fish sauce. Have all of your ingredients prepared and close to the stove. Cooking goes very quickly.

Categories     dinner, weekday, main course

Time 10m

Yield Serves four to six

Number Of Ingredients 15

4 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
8 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 large carrot, peeled and diced small or cut in julienne
4 ounces tofu, patted dry and cut in 1/2-inch dice
4 eggs, beaten and seasoned with salt and pepper
5 cups cooked rice, preferably Thai jasmine rice available in markets that sell Asian foods
2 to 3 tablespoons Thai or Vietnamese fish sauce (to taste)
2 to 3 teaspoons Thai or Indonesian chile sauce (to taste)
1 tomato, chopped
1 bunch scallions, both white and green parts, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Thinly sliced cucumber
Lime wedges
Fish sauce with hot chiles nam pla prik or half the amount of soy sauce


  • Heat a large wok or large, heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until a drop of water evaporates upon contact. Add the oil and swirl, then add the carrot and tofu. Stir-fry until lightly colored, about two minutes. Add the garlic and stir-fry until golden, about 30 seconds. Pour in the beaten egg. Stir-fry until scrambled, then add the rice. Cook the rice - scooping it up and pressing it into the pan, then scooping it up again - for about two minutes. Add the fish, chile sauces, tomato and chopped scallions, then stir together for about a half-minute. Serve, garnishing each plate with the cilantro and cucumbers and passing lime wedges, scallions and fish sauce with chiles. Diners should squeeze lime juice onto their rice as they eat.


Thai-Style Fried Rice image

Any green vegetables you have on hand can be used in place of the bok choy.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Ingredients     Meat & Poultry     Pork Recipes

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 fresh green chile, sliced, or chili paste or crushed red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons peanut oil or other vegetable oil (not olive oil)
2 garlic cloves, minced (1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
2 scallions (both white and green parts), minced (about 3 tablespoons)
3 ounces boneless pork, such as shoulder or loin, cut into 2 x 1/2-inch strips
1 cup shredded bok choy or other similar green vegetable
1 1/2 cups cooked jasmine or basmati rice
Sprigs of fresh cilantro, for garnish
1/2 cucumber, peeled and cubed
1 or 2 fresh lime wedges for garnish


  • Combine the chile and 2 tablespoons of the fish sauce in a small dipping bowl. Set aside. Heat a well-seasoned wok or frying pan over high heat. Add the oil and almost immediately add the garlic, ginger, and 2 tablespoons of scallions. Stir constantly for about 40 seconds. Be careful not to burn the mixture. Add the pork and continue to stir for 3 minutes, or until the pork is no longer pink.
  • Stir in the bok choy and cook until it is just tender, a couple of minutes. Stir in the cooked rice. Add the remaining tablespoon of fish sauce and heat through, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, garnish with cilantro, cucumber, the remaining tablespoon of scallion, and the lime. Serve the dipping sauce on the side.

  • Start by gathering all the ingredients. Making this fried rice hardly takes any time, but needs to be quick while stir-frying it. To make the process quick and smooth, make sure all the ingredients required are prepared and kept next to the cooking counter.
  • Make sure the rice is already cooked and cooled well. It is important to use cooled rice to keep the grains separate. If the rice is freshly cooked, the fried rice will turn out mushy.
  • Prepare the shrimp. If using frozen shrimp, thaw them to room temperature. Wash them and pat them dry using a kitchen towel. If using fresh shrimp, remove the head and tail. Remove the vein using a sharp paring knife. Wash the shrimp well and pat dry.

  • Add your oil to a wok or large frying pan and heat over medium-high. When the oil is hot, add your garlic and fresh ginger (if using ground, wait to add it until you add the rice). Saute for 60 seconds.
  • Add your rice and stir it around to coat it in oil. You may feel like you want to add more oil, but don’t. You need the rice to get some good color and texture on it, and too much oil will just make it…well, oily.
  • Fry the rice for 30 seconds and then stir it around to expose the un-fried side to the heat. Cook for another 30 seconds, and stir. Add your soy sauce and fish sauce and stir it in.
  • Move your rice mixture out of the center of the pan, making a little well for your eggs. Pour your beaten eggs into the center and let them cook for a few seconds undisturbed. Now, break up the eggs and stir into your rice, making sure to mix everything together well.
