Probably one of the simplest meals to cook is fried rice. If you want to go down the path to cooking Thai food then this is a great one to start with. I cook this one every now and then as it is a good way to use up rice left over from the day before. You can use seafood or meat, it is up to you. In the above dish, pork was cooked in a frying pan first. Then an egg was broken into the pan and mixed up. Cooked rice was then added. It is important that this is rice left over and not fresh rice. You then add some fried garlic, chopped onion and tomato slices and then later season with soy sauce/fish sauce, sugar, salt and some chili sauce. When it is finally ready, garnish with coriander and sliced spring onion. Very simple and delicious.
