Khao Phat Kaphrao (Stir-Fried Rice Thai Chicken with Basil) ข้าวผัดกะเพรา

You will need 4 cups of cooked cold Thai Jasmine rice, (cooked at least 4 hours before)

1 pound ground or minced chicken
4 whole cloves garlic
6 whole shallots, pealed
¼ cup, mixed red and green Thai chilies
1 cup chopped long beans
1 cup holy basil leaves,
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoon nam pla
1 teaspoon palm sugar

You can vary this recipe by adding a medium diced onion or sliced green onions, or a combination.

The garlic, shallots and chilies, are ground together in a mortar and pestle. In a hot wok with a little cooking oil, briefly stir fry this paste to bring out the flavour and aroma. Add the chicken and stir fry, for a couple of minutes Add the remaining ingredients and continue to stir until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the wok and Set aside. DO NOT Clean the wok

Put 1 tablespoon of oil into the still hot wok. Add the cooked rice to the wok and stir-fry until heated through. Add the pad grapow stir-fry, and stir-fry for another 3 minutes, to mix thoroughly

Serve with a fried egg, placed on the top. For dinner it goes well with the hot and sour tom yam soups, as well as curries and other Thai food.
