How to Make Thai Yellow Fried Rice

  • Toss and fold to coat the rice well - be gentle.
  • Fry for 1-2 mins, tossing in between.
  • Add the coconut milk, Thai basil leaves and 2 glasses water. Adjust salt and sugar.
  • Bring to boil, then simmer, covered till the grains are almost (3/4th) cooked.
  • Add the chopped capsicum, peas, tofu cubes, chicken pieces if non-veg, soya sauce and remaining ingredients, cover the vessel and toss.
  • Continue cooking till the rice is done.
  • Open and simmer until the grains dry up and are not too sticky (don't stir at this moment).
  • Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with chopped coriander, fish/oyster sauce and Thai red-chilli paste. Serve hot.
