Dressed Nut Rice ( Kao Pat Tan-ya-puid )


This rice is a typical rice dish, made with lotus nuts and dried Chinese herbs. It's typical in Thailand to pad rice with dressings to make it more interesting as a daily food, as you can see with the tomatoes and rolled egg in the photograph. Don't worry if you can't find all the herbs, the most important one for this recipe is lotus nuts, and you can usually buy Chinese herbs in packets, so simply choose a blend that includes lotus nuts.

Un cook Rice
50 gms Peanuts
50 gms Lotus Nuts
50 gms Astragalus
50 gms Dried Lycium Fruit
1 Tablespoon Oil
3 Garlic Cloves
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
Pinch of Sugar
Pinch of Black Pepper

1. Soak the nuts in warm water for 30 minutes to soften them. Mix into the rice and cook together with the rice.
2. Chop the garlic, and fry in a little oil to release the flavour. Add the cooked rice and all the other ingredients and fry, stirring as it cooks for 2-3 minutes.

Serve With
Fried Egg Omelet

Hello There,
Very nice recipe...sounds yummy to me. Will visit again!


Hi! I went to Thailand a while ago, and I love everything about it, the country, the people and the food!!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipies with the rest of the world, I'm looking forward to try them!!! :-)
Also I love the fact that you've explained everything in a simple way and added beautiful photos. I have one question though, what is toasted sticky rice? Do you make it yourself? Thank you :-) Best regards, ann

Take a dry frying pan, some sticky rice grains and heat the grains (turning them continuously) until they toast to brown. You then normally put it in a Thai mortar and bok-bok it to break it into a fine powder.
