This is a typical popular dish in Thailand. It is called ‘Pad Kraprow’ in Thai, we have it for lunch or dinner. You can use any meat with this dish, or even seafood. Obviously if you have this dish in Thailand, it will be a lot hotter than my recipe, but if you can’t handle the heat you can leave out the chilli altogether. That is how I make it for my son normally, and he loves it! Also in the recipe, I use the standard European basil but really it should be Thai holy basil which has a stronger taste. If you can get it at some point, do try this recipe with that. You can taste the difference!
This dish is best served with jasmine rice and topped with a fried egg to make it that extra special.
