Thai Fried Rice

******************************************************************************
Thai Fried Rice


Thai fried rice is simple an tasty. Long grain rice sauteed with baby corn, capsicum, spring onion and a hint of curry paste. Thai cooking is a confluence of Chinese, Malay and Indian Cuisines. Spicy curries served with aromatic rice are cooled down with tangy salads. The Thai's believe that food must please the eye as well as the taste buds and take great care in the presentations of dishes.

I was not able to find baby corn so skipped it, and added carrot, red capsicum, some onions an chopped garlic for extra taste and flavor. Recipe called for Basmathi rice instead of Long grain rice. Can use Red or Green curry paste. You can change the quantity of curry paste to suit your taste.

Archy:
Your rice looks great. BTW, generally the canned baby corns are available in or around the oriental/chinese food section at the regular supermarkets. At whole foods, I have seen them near the canned beans shelves. Hope it helps.

I tried this recipe twice. Once the way you have given, and the next in a little different way. I skipped lemon rind and fried baby corn after marinating it in ginger garlic paste, and then added this at the end. It is an excellent recipe with easily available ingredients. Basmati rice gives it the authentic aroma. You can also toss a few mushroom pieces to give it a different flavor.

Its color is also very attractive and my husband liked it very with onion raitha.
