Thai Red Curry Apple Fried Rice

The original recipe for this fried rice uses London curry powder as part of the seasoning but here I have substituted it with Thai Red Curry Paste  [see post for paste ingredients and preparation] which makes this fried rice even more aromatic and flavourful.  I replace the salt and light soy sauce with fish sauce.  Hmm...hope you can imagine how's the taste like.
I have added french beans cos' this is a One dish meal [you can omit it].
Ingredients
[serves 3-4]
5 bowls cooked rice
1/2 chicken breast - skin removed and diced
1 onion - peeled and chopped
1 big green apple - peeled and diced
4-5 french beans - diced [optional]
2-3 eggs - lightly beaten
2 stalks spring onion - chopped
3 tbsp oil [4-5 tbsp if using curry powder]
Seasoning
4 tbsp Thai red curry paste
4-5 tbsp fish sauce to taste
  1. Heat oil, saute onions until aromatic.  Add chicken meat and stir fry until cooked. Push aside.
  2. Pour in beaten egg and stir fry until set.  Push aside.
  3. Add rice, seasoning and stir fry over medium heat until rice is light and well mixed.  Return fried chicken meat and scrambled eggs, stir to mix with rice.

  4. Add in diced apples.  Stir well.  Off heat and sprinkle chopped spring onions.
  5. Dish out to serve.

Hi Lena, I love trying out new flavours. If not for my niece, I would have added more curry paste. It will be more aromatic and spicy.

Wow, this is a creation, Kimmy. I'd love this.... simple one-dish meal.

Kimmy, it is first time I see apples used in fried rice! I am sure it goes well with the spicy red curry seasoning.

Hi Cheah, you have all in a plate - carbo, protein, fibre and flavours.

Hi Phong Hong, makes the fried rice light and refreshing and not too spicy.

Hi Ivy, you can make the Thai red curry paste to try this fried rice and also the Thai Red Curry Chicken. They are good.

Curry and apple in fried rice, very creative and must be delicious too, thumbs up!

kimmy said...

Miss B, using the Thai red curry paste makes this fried rice more aromatic than when using just curry powder. You can even add basil leaves and shredded kaffir lime leaves, hmmmm.......
