Easy 15 Minutes Thai Fried Rice

How to Make Thai Fried Rice:

Especially with the recent Back-to-School routine, this comes in super handy and makes mealtime absolutely a breeze.

Infact, I used their Success® Jasmine Rice for making this Easy 15 Minutes Thai Fried Rice.

All I did was just take a bag of the pre-packaged rice and popped it into a pan filled with water.

While it cooked (10 minutes), I chopping and sauteing all the veggies, tofu and sauce.

After 10 minutes, I just lifted the bag out of the pan and let all the water drain (the bag has tiny holes just like a colander).

The rice came out perfectly done and fluffy. Gave everything a final stir and voila – you have the dish ready in 15 minutes!!

Getting back to my recipe, there is a secret ingredient that’s added here to make it taste absolutely like a restaurant dish and that is a tablespoon of peanut butter 🙂

It not only enhances the flavor so good but also adds this gorgeous color.

And don’t even get me started on ‘How much the kiddo’s loved it’. I’ve made this for endless parties or even small gatherings at our place.

And my friends couldn’t believe that their kids were actually gorging on this bowl full of rice and wait did we mention VEGGIES (lolz).

Extra Tips:

  • Sambal Sauce – you can use any red chili sauce of choice or skip this ingredient and add everything else.
  • If Vegan, you can use Tamari instead of Soy Sauce.
  • If you are on a regular diet, you can even add the oyster sauce for more flavoring.

Freezing Instructions:

  • Once the fried rice is ready, cool it completely.
  • Now, if you want to proportion the rice, you can divide as per choice and pack them in ziplock or freezable containers.
  • Or simply add all of it in a freezable container, close the lid and place it in the freezer.
  • This rice can be kept in the freezer for 3 weeks.
  • To eat, thaw the rice in microwave as per microwave instructions and enjoy once hot.

So, I really hope you give this a try soon as this not only makes a great entree but you can use it as a side or even for packed lunches (as it tastes great even cold).

And, with Success® Rice, the mealtime for the busy back to school schedules will become less stressful.\

    Where I live we don’t have boil-in-bag rice… if I have to make the rice, how much would I have to use?

    • Molly Kumar September 28, 2016 (7:36 pm)

      Hi Alicia, You’d need 2 cups cooked rice for this particular recipe. Hope you get to try it soon & thanks for visiting our site 🙂

        Thank you! I will definitely give it a go!

  • Kavey August 23, 2016 (9:31 am)

    I’ve really become a fan of ready cooked or quick cook rice lately, and it’s so handy for recipes where you go on to use the rice as an ingredient in your recipe.

    • Molly Kumar August 24, 2016 (4:13 am)

      Thanks Kavey. It’s seriously makes meal time so easy and yum !!

  • Melanie @ Nutritious Eats August 22, 2016 (6:18 pm)

    • Molly Kumar August 23, 2016 (4:02 am)

  • Bintu - Recipes From A Pantry August 21, 2016 (6:48 am)

    Looks fabulous. Just wondering is there a substitute for fish sauce if you are a vegetarian?

    • Molly Kumar August 21, 2016 (8:59 am)

      Thanks Bintu. You can replace the fish sauce with ‘Tamari’ or ‘Dry Shitaki Mushroom’ too as they taste very similar.

  • Tina Jui | The Worktop August 21, 2016 (5:42 am)

    Hmm I’ve made fried rice a million times, but I’ve never used peanut butter in it before. Thanks for the new idea!

    • Molly Kumar August 21, 2016 (8:59 am)

      Oh you gotta try peanut butter in fried rice – It taste Super Delicious !!! Thanks for visiting Tina 🙂

  • Claire | Sprinkles and Sprouts August 21, 2016 (12:17 am)

    I nearly always have a ziplock bag of rice in the freezer (my portioning when I cook rice is ALWAYS out!!) So could I that instead of pouch rice?

    • Molly Kumar August 21, 2016 (8:23 pm)

      Thanks so much Claire 🙂 You can use that rice too. Hope you get to try this soon – Hugs, Molly

  • Anne Murphy August 20, 2016 (10:40 pm)

    That sounds delicious! And I love the way peanut butter thickens in a sauce… just perfect.
