This is truly delicious looking fried rice Thip. I cook a lot of Thai food, but never made their version of fried rice. A recipe must try.

I love scrumps (shrimp)! I also like the way you used brown rice-so much more authentic and healthful...

You're welcome, Savitharaj.

Elra, you should try fried rice curry too. :)

Cam de la Ron, the texture of brown rice is great for fried rice.

Hi Thip, yeah I know. Your post inspired me to make a fried rice. I don't like to go to the store until I'm really low on food so as to not waste, so I just used what I had: organic jasmine brown rice, pineapple, and an array of other ingredients to give it a true Thai flavor-it was great. Thanks Thip, Cam

This is just my kind of dish, Thip :) For some reason I keep thinking I'd add shrimp paste to this-- and I don't even usually use shrimp paste!

This is one of my favorite fried rice besides the tomyum fried rice. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Nice photo, Thip!
