Fried Rice with Chilli Kapi Sauce ( Kao Pad Nomprick Kapi )


Shrimp Pate (a paste of ground up shrimp) is used to make chilli sauce or for mixing with rice in a dish called 'Kao Kloock Kapi'. This recipe is quite a way to use shrimp paste, used in Eastern Thailand, it is salty and should be eaten with lots of vegetables. The egg aubergines used are Thai vegetables, very different from the larger dark aubergines easten in the west.

Dear Appon,

Long ago, I used to eat in this Thai restaurant and it served this dish they called "Thai Fried Rice".

From my memory, the rice itself had the colour like yours in this recipe but it didn't have any aubergines in it. In fact, it didn't have any bite-size ingredients in the rice itself. Instead, it was served topped with minced beef (on the sweetish side), sliced fried omelette, shredded young mango, sliced raw shallots and fried fine shrimps.

After the restaurant closed down, I never found any restaurant which served this dish. Is this a common dish and any idea how to make it? Otherwise, what is it called in Thai? Maybe I can do a google.

Thanks! Your site is wonderful, it's the first site I go to whenever I want to attempt a Thai dish. So I thought you're probably the best person to ask! :)

In the recipe browser, under 'Rice Dishes', you'll find many Thai stir fried rice dishes (there is more than one such dish). The sweet beef side dish is probably based on sweet pork, (search for candied pork on this site). There's also a very spicy mince dish which is more traditional. The omelette dishes (again there are more than one possibility) you can also in the recipe browser.
