American Fried Rice ข้าวผัดอเมริกัน – Hot Thai Kitchen!
Since the 4th of July celebration is coming up, I thought it would be the appropriate time for me to post this “Thai” recipe! This fried rice, though named “American”, is a uniquely Thai experience. It contains ingredients that we associate with American food: ketchup, hot dogs, sunnyside up egg, and fried chicken drumsticks (possibly through the asoiciation with KFC).
In Thailand, this is one of the most popular dishes amongst kids because it is not spicy, has kid-friendly flavours, and it just looks like a lot of fun! (Which kid wouldn’t love octopus-shaped mini hot dogs, right?) It has been a long time since I had this dish, and I thought that with my adult palate, I wouldn’t like it as much now, but I was so surprised to find that I love it even more, and I’m sure you will too!
