Baby Corn and Basil Fried Rice

This simple rice dish prepared in Thai Style is balanced with adequate amount of spice and softened with sweet baby corn, flavored with Sweet Basil Herbs. This sure tickles your tongue and rejuvenates your taste buds. Don't trust me, try it for your self  :-) Here is the recipe, Enjoy!

Baby Corn Basil Fried Rice

Rice ( cooked) - 2 Cups
Baby Corn Kernels -  6 to 7
Thai Green Chili - 1 or 2
Crushed Red Pepper flakes - 1 tsp
Red Chili Sauce - 1 tsp
Chili Garlic Sauce - 1 tsp
salt - 2 tsp
black pepper  - 1/4tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Basil - 8 to 10 leaves (fresh)
Lime Juice - 1 tsp


  1. Heat Oil in the non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot, add the crushed red pepper flakes.
  2. Slice the green chili length wise and add it to the pan. Chop the baby corn length wise ( 1 inch sticks) and to the pan and stir fry for 2 min.
  3. Add salt,black pepper, Red Chili sauce, Chili Garlic Sauce. and Fry it on high flame for another 4 to 5 minutes. 
  4. Add the cooked rice and mix it well, so that the rice is coated and sauteed with all flavors. Taste and adjust the seasonings. 
  5. Add the chopped basil leaves to the pan and cook for another 2 min. Finally add the lime juice and Turn off the heat and Transfer it to the serving bowl. 

And serve hot, this tastes good when it is hot, so serve it immediately after you made this. This will be perfect for Dinner for Two for those Friday Nights or will be good for lunch box when you have left over rice.


  • This rice is little spicy in nature. If you want less spice version, reduce the crushed red pepper flakes and green chili in amount. or in addition add Tomato Sauce (ketchup).
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes are very important for this recipe. You don't have them handy, crush the red chilies in the mortar. (usually i save all my extra red pepper flakes seasonings that comes with Domino's Pizza :-))
  • Adding the red pepper to the oil makes it spicy and will coat the rice with adequate spice. That is the secret tip in this recipe...
  • Though you made this ahead, make sure you heat it up for 1 min in microwave before serving.
  • I have used Sweet Basil in this recipe, you can replace that with Thai Basil also.

Enjoy the Spice until I come up with one Cool recipe
