Tom Yam Fried Rice

Happy Good Friday Peeps! Today's recipe is Tom Yam Fried Rice. Yeah! it makes no sense at all to be posting this today. But its just a follow up post from yesterday. 

This recipe was purely experimental which turned out fabulous. Don't think it is very authentic at all. Just my version. Its served with the prik nam pla which is a sauce made up of chillies and fish sauce. It goes like a dream with this sauce. I served the fried rice with these chicken wings. smack!

Not really in the mood to write anything today at all. Just physically and mentally exhausted. Looking forward to the weekend ahead... happy weekend y'all! 

Thai rice - 2.5 cups
Shrimp - 1/2 kg(I used the small sized ones)
Garlic, minced - 6 cloves
Onion, chopped - 1/2
Chinese broccoli - 4
Egg - 3
Soy sauce - 1/2 tbsp
Spring onions, chopped - 3 tbsps
Tom yam paste - 100 g (approx)
Small red chillies, chopped - 3

Prik nam pla (chillies in fish sauce)
fish sauce - 3 tbsps
red chillies, chopped - 4 ( depends on your heat level)
lime juice - a few drops (optional)

  • Mix all the ingredients

  • Cook the rice in a rice cooker . For 2.5 cups of rice I used just 2 cups and a tiny bit more water. You dont want the rice to get soft because it cooks extra in the heat while cooking. Once your done cooking it let it cool completely.
  • Wash the shrimp. Remove the head and leave the tail on. (Although I removed the tail too ) 
  • Cut the Chinese broccoli into half along the spine and then into 2 inch pieces.
  • In a wok, heat some oil. Saute the garlic for about 15 seconds. Add the shrimps and saute. Add some salt. When the shrimps start turning pink add a quarter of the cooled cooked rice. Let the rice soak up all the goodness :)
  • Scoot all the rice to one side. Crack the eggs onto the empty side of the pan and cook it with some salt. Once it has cooked mix it with the rice and shrimp.
  • Add the chinese broccoli, onions and chillies and saute for a few seconds.
  • Add in the rest of the cooled rice and mix well. Add the soy sauce.
  • Add in the tom yam paste and mix well. Add more according to your taste.
  • Add the spring onions. stir and the serve.
