The Thai Fried Rice Recipe: Khao Pad (ข้าวผัด)

Fried rice or Khao pad, is a very simple and delicious dish, it is certainly the most common food in restaurants in Thailand.

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