  3. Dribble the soy sauce down the inside of the wok and mix it in .
  4. Turn the heat off, add the chopped basil and mint leaves, stir quickly and serve with a sprinkling of bonito flakes, dried shallots and some freshly milled black pepper.

Very Good and Simple!! So happy I finally found a "stir fried rice" recipe that doesn't require millions of steps and is made with stuff I usually have on hand. I loved this recipe(although, I didn't add the mint leaves)! You could also add any cooked meats to it afterward. Thanks for sharing. Made for Bargain Basement Tag-
