Looking for a quick and light weeknight meal packed with veggies? Thai fried rice is a choice sure to satisfy. In this video, Phoebe demonstrates how to make authentic Thai fried rice. Phoebe uses Jasmine rice to make Thai fried rice which is an authentic choice - Jasmine rice is frequently used in Thai cooking. The rice should be cooked prior to beginning this recipe.
To make fried rice, begin by heating your pan with vegetable oil. When the oil begins to sizzle, add your shallots, radishes, and carrots to the pan. Stir fry your veggies until they are nice and tender. Throw in your garlic next and be sure to watch it - garlic on a hot pan can burn if it isn't stirred.
Now it's time to add in your cooked rice to the pan to get your Thai fried rice really going. Whenever you are stir frying any dish be sure you are using a very hot pan - this is essential, as none of the ingredients need to cook for very long. After your rice and veggies have been cooking for a few minutes, add in your fish sauce and the juice of half a lime.
Last but not least, add in your basil to finalize your Thai fried rice. That's all there is to it! Now, all that's left is to grab a set of chop sticks and dig into your homemade Thai fried rice.
