People usually eat lunch or dinner at Thai restaurants, so they have their favorite Thai dishes for the day. But noone seems to know that Thai people also eat breakfast, and they surely dont' eat cereal! so what do they eat? And what can you make for a quick Thai breakfast to complement the rest of your Thai craving?
Kao Tom Jao, or "instant Thai breakfast" as I call it, is what we usually make for a quick breakfast to get us going. It kind of like chicken rice soup, only Thai style. You can add what you'd like to it, shrimp, chicken, pork, or fish.
Use the following ingredients:
Steam rice 1 1/2 cups
Ground chicken, pork, or turkey 1 tablespoon
Galic (minced) 2 cloves
Cilantro (minced) 1 teaspoon
Spring onion (minced) 1 teaspoon
Salt or fishsauce 1 teaspoon
And here's a quick way to make it:
1. boil water and garlic wait for a few minute add salt, ground chicken or (other meat).
2. add steamed rice after ground chicken is fully cooked
2. Let pot boil for 5 minutes add cilantro, spring onion and soy sauce and serve
4, add chili or lime juice or white vinegar for seasonning
See, that was fast right? and sure tastes better then cereal! Much more healthy too! Its also a good food for young children.......sure bets giving them cornflakes!
