Instructions

  • To make Thai chili paste: mix chili peppers, shallot, garlic, shrimp paste, dry shrimp, and 2 tbs oil in a blender. Add the rest of oil to a pot and add the mixture. Stir fry about 2-3 minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients and cook over medium heat until it forms a paste.
  • Add 1 tbs oil to a wok over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, and cook, stirring occasionally, until pink, about 2-3 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.
  • Add 2 tbs cooking oil to a wok over medium-high heat. Add chili paste, lemongrass, onion, and kaffir lime leaves. Cook for about 2-3 minutes. Stir in vegetables and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Raise heat to high and stir in the chilled rice. Stir quickly until the paste is blended with the rice.
  • Add fish sauce and sugar. Use the back of a spoon to break up any rice sticking together.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in shrimp and lime juice, and adjust the seasonings.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with lime wedges.
