Thai fried rice

Spicy basil fried rice!My favourite fried rice dish, okay maybe joint top alongside nasi goreng!

1 day old Rice1.5 cup
Chicken Breast1
Pre Cooked Prawns150g
Onion1 medium diced
Carrots1 diced
Bird eye chillies3
Garlic3 cloves
Basil Handful (big handful)
Dark Soy Sauce1 tbsp
Light Soy Sauce3 tbsp
Oyster Sauce2 tbsp
Sugar1 tsp
Sesame oil0.5 tsp
Olive oil5 tbsp
  1. Slice the chicken into small thin pieces.
  2. Mix the Soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, sesame oil in a bowl.
  3. Grind the chillies, garlic in a pester and mortar by adding a little bit of the olive oil. Add a pinch of salt to help the process.
  4. Preheat a wok and add some oil. Add the onions.
  5. After a couple of minutes add the chilli garlic paste. Fry for a couple of minutes, then add the chicken.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, add carrots and add the rice.
  7. Once the rice is fully heated (the grains can be separated), Add the sauce and mix straight away before lumps of rice form. Add the chopped up basil and mix well.

P.S If you want to add an extra something, add a fried egg on top and serve alongside cucumbers to help with the spiciness! Feel free to take out chicken or prawns!
