This spicy stir fry recipe is common throughout Thailand. Bulked with rice and topped with a fried egg, it is a delicious tasting, cheap, easy to prepare and filling meal.
Spicy and meaty, pretty much every visitor to Thailand is sure to have tried and enjoyed this recipe.
Usually served with minced pork, however I have used minced beef. You can also use minced chicken. The egg is optional, but I find it goes well with the dish as a whole.
