Thai Fried Rice with Basil

What I used:

Cooked rice : 2 cups
Garlic : 3 cloves (finely chopped)
Thai red chillies : 5 to 6 (sliced vertically)
Red Onion : 1/2 (sliced thinly)
Beans : 10 to 12 (cut into 1" pieces)
Carrots : 1/2 (julienned)
Button mushrooms : 12 to 15 (chopped)
Cooking oil : 2 tbsp
Soy sauce : 3 tbsp
Lime juice : 1 tbsp
Ground white pepper : 1/2 tsp
Salt : as required
Sugar : 1/2 tsp
Roasted peanuts : for garnish
Basil leaves : 20 to 25

How I did:
  • In a wok, heat oil over medium heat and fry chopped garlic and thai red chillies until garlic is light brown. 
  • Add onions, beans, carrot, and mushrooms and stir. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until all the veggies are done and add rice. Stir to combine and fry 1 minute. 
  • Add soy sauce, lime juice, white pepper powder, salt and sugar and stir until evenly distributed. 
  • Add basil leaves, stir, and remove from heat. Garnish with a few basil leaves and roasted peanuts and serve hot.
