I always loved Asian cuisine but after eating at Hot basil restaurant, I was addicted to Thai Fried Rice. I wanted to try to make the exact same recipe so I can enjoy at home whenever I felt like it. This is a dish that can be incorporated with a variety of flavors with lots of room for experimentation and adaptation. I have tailored this dish to suit the palates that my family likes.
You can experiment with variety of vegetables, eggs, pineapple or basil/mint. I typically use jasmine rice or sushi (sticky rice). This recipe is very easy and quick to make. You can come home from work and make this dish from left over rice in minutes. If you have the sauces in stock, you can throw in some vegetables, stir fry in the wok and your rice is ready!
2-3 cups of cooked Jasmine rice
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp of Ginger paste
1 tbsp of Garlic paste
1 cup Bell peppers (finely chopped)
1-2 cup Green beans (finely chopped)
2-3 Serrano peppers (finely chopped)
1 cup of Onions (finely chopped)
2 tbsp of Soy sauce
2-3 tbsp Sriracha chili garlic sauce ( with chili seeds- add more if you want more spicy)
Salt as per taste
1-2 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of white pepper powder (optional)
Heat oil in a wok/pan on high heat; add the Serrano peppers, onion, ginger-garlic paste, green beans and bell peppers. sprinkle some salt and stir fry all of them together on high heat until lightly cooked. add the Sriracha chili garlic sauce, soy sauce and stir fry for a few more minutes. Finally stir in the cooked rice and mix until all ingredients are combined well. Add more soy sauce, sriracha sauce or white pepper powder as per your taste.
