Fried rice in the Thai culture is served as a seperate meal,never as a substitute for plain boiled rice. As I have previously mentioned the best time to prepare fried rice is when you have day old rice,how economical!!! especially with the price of rice right now. I love this recipe as it does not really require any fancy ingredients but can all be shopped for at most local supermarkets.
2 tablespoons oil
2 garlic cloves,finely chopped
3 oz boneless chicken,chopped or sliced
21/2 cups cooked rice
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
2 tablespoons Fish sauce
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 spring onion,trimmed and slivered into 1 inch lengths
1/2 onion,finely slivered
a shaking of ground white pepper
In a wok or frying pan,heat the oil till a light haze appears. Add the garlic and fry until golden brown. Add the curry powder,stir and cook for a few seconds;add the chicken and cook for a minute or two until the meet is opaque . add the rice and stir throughly. Add the soy sauce,fish sauce and sugar,stirring after each addition.
Cook together for a few seconds until you are certain till you are certain that the meat is cooked and the rice throughly reheated.
Turn onto serving dish,garnish with the spring onion,and lightly sprinkle with pepper.
