    Thai is one of my favorite cuisine after Indian food. I love to eat Thai fried rice when ever I crave to eat some thing spicy and non Indian. I tried to prepare Thai fried rice a couple of times, here is the final winner recipe which gave the restaurant taste after a bunch of failures.

    Cooking Time: 20 Minutes

    Servings: 2


    1. Cooked jasmine rice, chilled – 3 cups
    2. Red pepper – 1
    3. Green pepper – 1
    4. Onions – 1/2 small
    5. Serrano peppers – 3 (Add more if you like it very hot)
    6. Garlic cloves – 6
    7. Olive Oil – 3 tablespoons (you can use any cooking oil)
    8. Basil leaves – 2 cups
    9. Oyster sauce – 1 1/2 tablespoon
    10. Fish sauce – 1 tablespoon
    11. Soy sauce – 2 tablespoon
    12. Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
    13. Sugar – 1 teaspoon
    14. Tofu – 1/2 lb, cut into 2 inch pieces. (You can replace with sliced chicken)

    Cooking Procedure

    1. Cut lengthwise red peppers, green peppers and onions into thin slices. Grind together the serrano peppers, garlic cloves and about 10 basil leaves.

    2. Heat about 1/2 table spoon oil in a pan and fry the tofu for 5-7 minutes. Keep it aside.

    3. In the same pan heat the remaining oil, add the garlic-serrano pepper paste and saute for 30 seconds. Add the oyster sauce, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the red-green peppers, onion, salt and saute for 5-6 minutes. Don’t over cook the veggies.

    4. Raise heat to high, add the tofu, rice, remaining basil leaves and stir quickly until the sauce is blended with the rice. Use a spoon to break the rice if sticking together.

    Garnish with cucumber slices and serve hot with chili sauce.

    Tip: If you don’t like to use fish sauce and oyster sauce, you can substitute them by Soy sauce. You can also use Thai chilies instead of Serrano peppers.
