Thai Fried Rice - Kao Pad

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

A spicy cousin to the Chinese classic. You can throw in some peanuts for added crunch if you wish. :)

Very easy to make - I did all my chopping, then had each group of ingredients to be added at once in a single bowl. It didn't seem as though the fish sauce, ketchup, and peppers would add enough flavor, but I was suprised at how tasty it was - although the cilantro adds quite a bit of flavor as well. I added some extra peppers, and served it with soy sauce and Tabasco (although you don't need much, and I would make sure to try it before adding extra seasoning).
