I usually never cook Thai food, but sometimes I get my cravings and I miss my moms food a lot. I’m not as good as her, but I will be soon haha. I just need to do it more often, and it is actually my favorite food, real thai food, not ‘european thai food’ as I call it.
One of my favorite place to go here in Iceland if I’m craving for real thai food, is Noodle station. I just love it. Otherwise I haven’t found any good thai restaurants here yet, but I’m still looking!
And you can find all the soy sauces in a regular supermarket, but you also have one Thai supermarket near Hlemmur in town. :)
3 dl jasmine rice (the best is to use ‘left over rice’, not newly boild rice)
500g of chicken filé
3 tablespoon of oil (not olive oil)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoon of mushroom soy sauce
2 teaspoon of fish soy sauce
Vegetables, you can choose what you want in your wok, and as you can see in my picture I had:
1 red chilli
4 large eggs
freshly squeezed lime juice
- Cook jasmine rice according to directions on package and let the rice cool. (OR use ‘left over rice’ that makes it much better).
- Cut the chicken and all the vegetable into pieces, including the onion.
- Heat a wok or frying pan with cooking oil.
- Fry the chicken, season it with white pepper and fry until it gets a nice colour.
- Add the garlic and the onion and fry everything together. (Be careful so you don’t burn the garlic)
- Pour the soy sauces into the pan and mix.
- Then add all the vegetables, remember to have high heat and stir constantly until the vegetables begin to soften a little but still retains some crispness. Push the vegetables a bit to the side and add the rice.
- Mix everything and make sure the pan is still really hot.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, mix it out properly in the rice. Taste and see if you need more soy sauce.
- Season with lime juice and garnish with fresh chopped coriander and roasted cashew nuts.
- Serve immediately with soy sauce or sweet chilli sauce.
Bon appetite! :)
