Khao Phat - Thai Fried rice

Love love love Thai food even before we relocated here. Khao phat is Thai fried rice.
Khao in Thai = RICE , and Phat = Fried . Its a quick and easy lunch or dinner option when you really lazy to cook.

Ingredients :
  • Cooked rice- 2 cups 
  • Onion- roughly chopped 
  • Garlic - 6 pods - crushed 
  • Carrot- 1 small cut into big round chunks 
  • Eggs- 3- whisked 
  • Boneless chicken- 1 bowl 
  • Oyster Sauce - 2 tsp or as per taste 
  • Thin black soy sauce - 2 - 3tsp 
  • Black soy sauce - 2-3 tsp 
  • Green chillies - 3 nos 
  • Oil 
  • Spring onion- handful for garnish 
  • Salt - Optional **  
Method : 
  1. Take a big wok or kadai. 
  2. Add oil and once heated add crushed garlic. Stir it for 1 min.
  3.  Add chicken and stir fry till its partially cooked. 
  4. Add carrots to it now and close the wok with a lid and allow the carrots and chicken to be fully cooked. Stir occasionally.
  5. Once cooked, Make a small hole in the middle and add the 4 whisked eggs. Mix it well 
  6. Add the onions, cooked rice and stir well. You can add the green chillies at this stage. 
  7. Add the oyster sauce, Thin soy sauce and Black soy sauce. Stir well and garnish with spring onion. 
  8. You can serve this with cucumber and chilli garlic soy sauce. This is optional 
  • Salt is mentioned as optional because oyster sauce has enough salt to make this dish tasty. If you add additional salt along with oyster sauce it will be too salty. 
  • Though this is the authentic way and oyster sauce is never avoided by Thai's , you can completely avoid the oyster sauce if you don't like and add salt instead as per taste. 
  • You can add more veggies if you want like beans. Also you can avoid adding chicken and make it a veg fried rice. 
  • Thin black soy sauce is what gives it flavour and black soy sauce gives it colour.

Easy Sambar (without tamarind)

Sambar is a must in most south Indian families and like others even I have grown up having dosa- sambhar and chutney's. A Sambar is a lentil based vegetable stew or curry cooked with dal/lentils along with some veggies and some tamarind pulp. There are coconut based sambar as well and each region has its own sambar variation. In my house, we all prefer quick meals, but yet tasty. My mother who was a working lady would make elaborate meals only during holidays or special occasions. Rest all the meals would be quick yet very very tasty. This is one such sambar which my mom has taught me and is super quick.  This doesn't use tamarind like in a traditional sambar and gets its tangy flavour from tomatoes. Its quick, one pot sambar recipe. Lets dive in and see how its done: Ingredients: Serves 3 1/2 to 1 cup Tur Dal/ Yellow Lentils 2-3 tomatoes chopped (depending on size) 1/2 cup Veggies each of your choice cubed Turmeric powder A pinch of Asafoetida/ Hing 1/2 tsp chilli powder Salt

Home-Made Nuts Powder

Home-Made Nuts powder is something which I have been making since Jeremy was a 9 month old. Initially to introduce nuts, I used to powder each nut separately (one day each) and mix with every food. As he grew older I realized he hates whole nuts especially Almonds and Pistachios. Cashews are still ok with him provided they are salted ones. But still he wasn't consuming much. Thats when I decided to continue making the essential and important nut powder. He hates the fact that nuts or chunky powder has been added and just rejects the whole meal even though its tasty and likes it. But this fine nut powder is a winner and I add it up in almost everything on a daily basis.  So this nut powder is perfect for fussy kid like mine or if you just wanna introduce nuts to your kids diet, this is a good solution. Its pretty simple and fuss free.   The powder is suitable for babies over 8 months, but before you feed this to your baby, make sure that baby has already tried the powdered version o
