This fried rice recipe is the most popular type of fried rice in Thailand. I liked Thai food very much when compared to all foods because for the taste and the spicyness. I like spicy food so i always prefer Thai food. My hubby stopped eating spicy food so we stopped going to Thai restaurant. I planned to make on my own. I have to make lunch for myself alone so if i feel lazy or bored to cook i will make this recipe. It will not take so much time.
Thai fried rice is a very easy dish to make, and a great way to use up leftover rice to eat spicy and yummy recipe. We can also use fresh cooked rice.

Cooking of rice:
Heat 1 and 1/2 cup of water in a pan when it boils add jasmine rice and mix it occasionally with fork because it will be little sticky. Cook for 10-15 min and then drain the water and keep in refrigerator till you saute the onion and curry paste.
Smash the garlic and Thai chillies in a Hand masher because this will bring out more flavour of garlic and chillies.
Place 1/2 Tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add the smashed garlic and chillies and stir fry to 2-3 min to release the fragrance. Then add onion and saute it for 2-3 min.
