Besides containing protein that our body needs, rice also gives energy for us to work or do some activities. Thai fried rice is basically like any other fried rice that comes with shrimps or chickens but what makes it different?

Secret Ingredient

Something that makes Thai fried rice even more special than other types of fried rice is for their ingredients. Most Thai fried rice uses fish sauce as its special ingredient. The flavour from the fish sauce gives an aromatic taste and smell to the fried rice. It balances the salty, sweet, and spicy taste to the dish which makes it delicious.

How To Make Thai Fried Rice?

The most important ingredient in order to make your own Thai fried rice at home is jasmine rice. The Thais do not use other type of rice because jasmine rice has fragrant smell and softer texture. Other basic ingredients that you need for Thai fried rice is garlic, onions, chillies, and shrimp paste. Firstly, you need to sauté garlic, onions and chillies in hot oil inside a pan.

Then, add some chickens and eggs to the pan for a few minutes. After that, you are ready to pour in the steamed rice and mix all the ingredients together.
