    I don't think that Thai basil fried rice is an authentic Thai dish; all the same, I liked it at the restaurants I ate it at, and here is my own version of it. My photography skills downright suck, so ignore the picture, but I've been making Thai food for years now and feel that I'm quite good at it, and I like the way that this turned out:


    Hope that this is helpful!

      I made Thai Basil Shrimp last night with a Jasmine rice. Since I had a piece of char siu, I also made Indonesian rice, a recipe posted not too long ago. Spicy and full of flavor. I'm sure it will be close to that. The Thai Basil Shrimp was so yummy and so Hot. in the Indonesian Rice dish, I add spicy chilie paste, not the whole chilies, it is really spicy throughout, all you would need is about a cup of fresh sliced basil.Let me know which or if any recipes you want. Lots of ginger, garlic and Fish Sauce make it wonderfully fragrant and flavorful...
