Recipe Fact
The combination of sweet and hot flavors in this stir-fry is inspired by Thai cuisine. Not hot enough? Add a dab of Thai curry paste or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce.
Ingredient Info
Grown in the Himalayan foothills for thousands of years, basmati is a tender, fragrant long-grain white rice. Its nutty aroma and delicate texture are a result of aging the rice to reduce its moisture.
Ingredient Substitution
Check the Asian growers at your local farmer's market for Thai basil or cinnamon basil to use instead of regular basil.
