  • Let’s Cook: Gapao Rice with Green Curry
  • Asians love rice dishes. Aside from being surprisingly simple to make, they are also flavorful and filling. So today, we’re making gapao, an excellent Thai dish made from minced chicken and herbs served with rice and egg. You will actually see its semblance to donburi and silog meals when you think of rice dishes with meat/fish, egg, and vegetables.

    However, some don’t like it mixed with herbs such as coriander and basil due to their inherently strong flavors. So in this case, we’re going to prepare this the Japanese way using local ingredients with a dollop of green curry for some fiery kick. It makes for a hearty meal that is loaded with amazing flavors and is absolutely easy to make.
