Spicy thai basil fried rice
One of our favorite go to cuisine is for sure is Thai cuisine great food , great flavors sometimes when we just pick up we usually have to have a fried rice order so today decided to recreate the same at home , it is simple and delicious . One of the crucial ingredients is the Jasmine thai rice I have tried this regular basmati rice but taste does not turn out the same so try to stick to the Thai rice :). Also make sure the basil is thai basil which can be easily found in asian markets. I used few online recipes and tweaked it to make it my own .
What U need :
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar Optional
Olive oil for frying (my preference)
4 cups cooked jasmine rice, chilled
6 large cloves garlic clove, crushed
2 green chillies
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
1 red pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cups sweet Thai basil
1 cucumber, sliced (optional)
1/2 cup cilantro springs
1/2 lemon cut quarter size
Prepare the ingredients by finely chopping the garlic and green chili. Slice the chicken into thin, pieces. Slice the red bell pepper, and onion into thin strips.
Heat a wok until very hot and then add 1-2 Tablespoons of oil . Add the finely chopped garlic and chilis and stir fry until the garlic is golden brown.
Add the chicken pieces and stir fry until it is cooked through. This should take 3-5 minutes, depending on how thick your chicken pieces are.
Then add the red bell peppers, quickly followed by all of the sauces.Once the peppers are close to done, add the onion slices and stir fry for 30 seconds to a minute until they are translucent, but still slightly firm.
Finally, add the rice and mix together with all of the other ingredients. Once the sauces have been mixed thoroughly with the rice, add the Thai basil and turn off the heat.
Add the lemon on the side serve eat yourself and Njoy!
