Khai Pad Gaprao (Chicken With Holy Basil)


  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mixed red & green
  • jalapenas (prik chi fa)
  • 1 teaspoon green peppercorns, whole.
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons palm sugar
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped holy basil leaves (bai gaprao)
  • 1 pound ground or minced chicken
  1.   The garlic, shallots, peppers and peppercorns are ground together in a mortar & pestle or a food processor. In a hot wok, with a little cooking oil, briefly stir fry this paste to bring out the flavour and aroma. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to stir until the chicken is cooked through.
