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.
