Mom's Thai Fried Rice
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
16 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is as close to my mom's recipe as I can get with actual measurements since she eyeballs the ingredients and never measures. It is a "classic" version, and not the spicy or pineapple version you so often see in Thai restaurants. She is a native of Thailand and owned her own fantastic Thai restaurant for many years. This recipe is one of my favorites because it is so easy. The key is to use leftover, cold, jasmine rice and Thai fish sauce ONLY, no soy sauce or it will be Chinese fried rice. Serve this with Nam Prik Nam Pla Sauce Nam Prik Nam Pla (Traditional Thai Sauce) to add a little spice and something extra to this dish!
