Thai basil turkey/chicken recipe (pad kra pao gai ผัดกระเพราไก่)

We used to lived near Malaysia-Thailand border for couple of years when I was a little kid, my family often go over to "the other side of border" for shopping and good foods.

This dish is one of our favourite dishes. It could be made with not just minced pork,  variations includes minced beef or chicken, I used turkey in my version, and still taste as amazing!

Ingredients:(For 2)
250 gms Minced chicken/turkey
8-10 thai green chillies
1 teaspoon Minced garlic
1 teaspoon Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon Fish Sauce or to taste
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Lemon/lime juice  (1 wedge of lime)
2 cup Thai basil leaves

2 fried egg

Chopped garlic and chillies, clean and pick thai basil leaves from stem.

Heat up a frying pan, fry garlic and chilli with about 2 tbsp of oil, when its fragrance, push it aside.

Add minced turkey, stir fry till it changes colour, add 1/2 cups of chicken stock or water to cook for 3 minutes, add oyster sauce, fish sauce, sugar, cook for another 2-3 minutes, you could add some pepper powder if preferred.

When it is almost done, add the basil leaves and mix well.

Squeeze lime juice over minced meat and serve with hot rice and a fried egg ...
