                                                                  Fried rice recipe 

 Fried rice or Khao pat (pronounced krao pat), is a very simple and delicious dish, it is certainly the most common dish in restaurants in Thailand.

In this Thai fried rice recipe, I put basic ingredients, but fried rice is a catch-all recipe, you can put vegetables and side dishes you want, it is often a recipe to use the leftover rice already cooked and finish the vegetables.

Fried rice is a quick and delicious way to transform leftovers into something delicious! Though we sometimes think of certain ingredients being typical (eggs, garlic) the only thing you need to make fried rice is heat, rice, and oil. Anything else you add is up to you. Before you make a batch though, read our tips for making fried rice.

Cold, Leftover rice is key.

The reason why so many fried rice recipes call for leftover rice, Dried out cold rice gets much crispier in the skillet than the freshly cooked stuff. If you're craving fried rice and don't want to wait for the rice to chill in the fridge, spread freshly cooked rice on a baking sheet and freeze it for 10 to 15 minutes.

Do I need to scramble my eggs separately or can I do it all in one pan?

You can totally start your rice by cooking the vegetables and then push them to one side of the pan and crack in your eggs and get scrambling. But be careful. Eggs can easily overcook this way.

What other flavor goes into fried rice?

Aside from sesame oil, we stir in minced garlic, soy sauce, and ginger.

Can I add other ingredients?

Absolutely! As we said, fried rice is endlessly adaptable. Fry up some bacon and toss in some kimchi and you've got an unreal Bacon Kimchi Fried Rice. Or, add some diced pineapple for a sweet twist on the classic.
