Any kind of fried rice is such a comfort food for me that I can have it every alternate day. If you ask me is there any shortcut for yummy food without spending too much time in the kitchen? Then the answer is of course YES! There are many but today I am sharing the yummy, healthy, little spicy and colorful dish which am sure everyone is going to love. And to know how it tastes…Try making soon. :D. Although I
am was not fond of Thai curries, when I tried green and red curry fried rice, THAT WAS AWESOME and since then I wanted to try that. So here it is, Spicy Thai red curry fried rice. Mix and match the veggies according to you and top it up with chicken breast pieces or shrimp (if required) and serve.
The secret tip for the perfect fried rice recipe is, always use a day old rice because it absorbs the flavor well and the rice grains stay separated. But if you forgot to cook a day before it’s perfectly ok. Cook then and spread on a plate and let it cool down completely. You can make this dish using any rice but for thai dishes, I always prefer jasmine rice cooked in coconut milk.
