Khao Pad

In Thai, khao means “rice” and pad means “of or relating to being stir-fried”. Khao Pad in Thailand differs from Chinese fried rice is that it is prepared with Thai Jasmine rice instead of regular long-grain rice. It normally contains meat (chicken, shrimp, and crabare all common), egg,onions, garlic and sometimes tomatoes. The seasonings, which may include soy sauce, sugar, salt, possibly some chili sauce, and the ubiquitous nam pla (fish sauce), are stir-fried together with the other ingredients. The dish is then plated and served with accompaniments like cucumber slices, tomato slices, limeand sprigs of green onion and coriander.
