I just back from wet market this morning. We did't have any breakfast only a cup of coffee this morning before going to market. My daughter so hungry. I should make easy and fast food for lunch. Even we have lot of things in our freeze. I won't do any special food. Because when people hungry they're easy to be angry. I should do "Pad ka-prao mou + khai dow" or fried ground pork with basil leave and fried egg. This is one plate dish. OK. let's see what I need.

  • 450 g ground pork
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 cup fresh holy basil
  • 7-8 chillies, chopped and pounded coarsely
  • Dash of ground white pepper
PREPARATIONS:
  • Heat a wok until the oil is hot, then stir in the garlic, and then add chillies. Stir another few seconds before adding the ground pork.
  • Continue Stir-frying until pork is cooked throughly.
  • Add onion and sprinkle black soy sauce over the mixture and stir-fry another 15-20 seconds.
  • Then add fresh basil leaves and fish sauce to taste.
  • Stir and mix well. Sprinkle with white pepper. Stir and transfer to a serving dish.

Hi Jan,
Would you mind to give me your mailing address I'll send you dry leave or seed.;)
This is very easy one dish plate.
This is one of my all time favourite Thai dishes. Thanks for the recipe! I love when the egg is slightly runny and the yolk spreads all over the pork.
This looks like something simple enough I can try making. Thanks for the recipe.

Tan, btw, I didn't get a chance to make the vegetarian dish with my Mom since its been raining these past 2 wkends (we need sunshine to dry up the papaya and daikon). But I posted a stirfry chayotte recipe for you to see(just leave out the dried shrimps if you make vegan version). Is chayotte something you can get easily in Thailand?

The dish combines the four main tastes of the local cuisine: sour lime, hot chili, salty, savory fish sauce, and sweetness added by palm sugar. The ingredients are mixed and pounded in a mortar; the Thai name som tam literally translates as "sour pounded".

Despite the use of papaya, which one may think of as sweet, this salad is actually savory. When not yet ripe, papaya has a slightly tangy flavor. The texture is crisp and firm, sometimes to the point of crunchiness. It is this that allows the fruit to withstand being beaten in the mortar.
