Khao Pad (Thai Fried Rice)

I’m sharing my family’s favorite fried rice! It’s actually Thai fried rice and the whole family always goes crazy for it!

Oh my gosh, there is a Thai restaurant next door to my work place, they make the most delicious Thai food. I have been craving their fried rice for the longest time and just had not had the change to get some. Well, I decided to recreate  it. I read about Thai food and ingredients and read through dozens and dozens of recipes until I got the jest of Thai food. Of course, unless you are in or from Thailand, you will not be able to get the exact flavor or even the right way to prepare the meal, but I got it pretty darn close to the way that restaurant prepares it! I am very proud of myself.

Khao Pad (Thai Fried Rice)


  • 4 tbs of peanut oil
  • 2 large shallots
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbs of grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 4 cups of cooked Jasmine rice
  • 3-4 tbs soy sauce (if you are using low sodium soy sauce, you may have to use more)


  1. Preheat a large skillet with 2 tbs of oil
  2. Grate the garlic and the ginger, slice the onions thin. Add to the heated skillet and saute until fragrant.
  3. Add the shredded carrots, cook until soft. Take out of the skillet, set aside.
  4. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of peanut oil in the skillet
  5. Lightly whisk the egg and 2 tsp of soy sauce, pour it in the center of the skillet. Let it sit there for a few second like a pancake (don't cook it completely).
  6. Add the rice and veggies, mix very well but carefully.
  7. Add the soy sauce, stir well and taste to see if you need more soy sauce.
