Spicy Thai Basil Fried Rice

Print Friendly and PDF
Basil is the most favorite herb at our place and love it in all the Italian dishes like pastas or pizzas or salads.When I saw Nam's Basil fried rice,I noted down d recipe in mind to make it as I was sure we will definitely like it.I had tweaked in few changes as I did not have few ingredients in my pantry at that moment.Mine did not turn that fiery as her's,might be it is because of the changes I made to the original recipe.But the fried rice was spicy and equally nice with a burst of flavors from basil and peppers.I followed and reproduced the original recipe for my convenience,check her space to see the fiery fried rice which I am talking about.

Ingredients:
(Recipe source : Finger Licking Food)

1 cup Jasmine Rice (I used Basmati Rice)
1 cup packed Thai basil leaves, washed
½ cup sliced red onions
½ cup sliced green peppers
½ cup sliced red and yellow peppers
¼ cup frozen peas
½ cup baby corn strips
5 cloves garlic, minced
1” piece ginger, grated
3 tbsp Sambal oleak(I used red chilli paste instead)
2 tsp Sriracha (I used tabasco)
2 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
1 ½ tbsp Brown Sugar
3 tbsp Olive oil
Salt to taste

Method:
  • Wash and soak jasmine/basmati rice for 10 mins and add 1 1/2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice and cook it in rice cooker or on the direct stove .Spread on a plate to cool and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a big kadai and minced garlic and grated ginger,saute for a few seconds until its fragrant.
  • Now add sliced onions, bell peppers and carrots and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until veggies are tender but crunchy.
  • Add frozen peas and saute for a minute and then add sambal oleak(red chili paste),brown sugar and enough salt(take care as we are adding other sauces as well). Mix everything until the veggies are coated.
  • Now add the cooked cooled rice and then add the soy sauce and sriracha(tabasco). Mix well and cook for 3 minutes on medium heat.
  • Chop basil leaves and add them immediately to the rice and mix well.
Serve it hot.I served it with simple onion raita because of my deep Indian roots.
