Making the Perfect Thai Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of the most common foods in Asia, and it is so simple to make. On every street corner in Thailand, you find food stalls, offering plates of fried rice. There are a few varieties of fried rice, and Thai fried rice goes in a much different direction.

In Thailand, fried rice serves as a lunch dish, and it is often served with cucumber and a wedge of lime on the side.

The most popular fried rice is crab fried rice. Cooking fried rice is also a great way to clean leftovers from your refrigerator since any vegetables and meats you have in your fridge will do.

For meats, you can use just about everything - bacon, crab, chicken, ham, tofu - you name it. Any vegetables will do very well too.
