Thai chili basil fried rice with chicken | Flavor Quotient | Thai chilli basil fried rice is a classic Thai delicacy and super popular across the world for good reasons!Being a Thai food lover, I had to make this classic Thai chilli basil fried rice which is nothing but an explosion of amazing flavors that is hard to forget! I regret not making this classic Thai delicacy earlier simply because this one turned out to be exceptionally tasty. I made Thai chilli basil fried rice with chicken but I am sure that even the meatless version will be equally crave-worthy. I believe so because the magical ingredient of this Thai chilli basil fried rice is not chicken but the sensationally aromatic fresh Thai basil leaves! I am lucky to have bountiful of these beautiful Thai basil leaves grown at home thanks to my plant-loving husband which made my homemade Thai chilli basil fried rice even more special with the homegrown basil leaves. Thai basil is quite different from Italian basil and possesses more sharpness than the Italian sweet basil. Thai basil releases incredible aroma when stir fried with rice on high flame. You need to experience it to believe it.
 

In case you already do not know, my better half is deep into gardening and growing herbs in our own kitchen garden is one of his favorite part of it. Thanks to his dedication, I am lucky to have the freshest of herbs right in my own balcony! The fresh Thai basil leaves used in this Thai chilli basil fried rice are all from our own garden only which makes this dish extra special! I am not sure if you would get the exact Thai basil leaves in supermarkets here in Bangalore, but you can definitely try growing them at home; they are real fun to have handy any given day! Thai basil leaves have very strong aroma which is so fresh that it will only tickle your senses but not overwhelm you in any way. They can be used in many Thai dishes like Thai green curry, Thai red curry, Thai massaman curry or many more. These leaves add authentic Thai flavor to any Thai recipe and I am simply in awe of it!
