Khao Phat Muu Sai Khai ข้าวผัดหมูไส่ไข่ Thai Fried Rice With Pork And Egg
Since I am home alone for the last one week, I have been eating very simple "one dish" meal. This is an example of my dinner when I'm cooking for myself. A wonderful way of using up leftovers in the fridge; the few stalks of kailan, the bowl of cold rice and yes! the piece of pork fillet in the freezer.
It took me less than 15 minutes to prepare this and I was very happy and content after eating my plate of fried rice! Aroy maak!
P.S don't forget to prepare some cut chilies in fish sauce too!
serves 1 as a one dish meal
1.5 cup of leftover rice
some pork fillet (use prawns or chicken if you fancy)
1 large stalk of kailan, sliced diagonally
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 bird chilies, chopped
1 spring onion, sliced
dash of light soy
dash of fish sauce
dash of oyster sauce
white pepper to taste
Fry pork pieces with chopped garlic and chilies til lightly brown, push aside. Heat up a little more oil and crack an egg into the wok.
Add rice and fry on high heat for 5 minutes, mix everything well. Next gailan is added follow by the seasonings, continue to fry til gailan is cooked. Meanwhile on a separate pan, cook a sunny side up.
Add fried egg on top of the plated rice and serve hot with some cut chilies and lime wedges. I also prefer to have some cut chilies with fish sauce.
Just a different angle :)
