Welcome back, fellow food lovers! At CourtSide Thai, we’re always excited to share our authentic Thai dishes that will transport your taste buds straight to the heart of Thailand. Today, we’re going to spotlight one of our most popular and beloved dishes: Pad Ka Prow. This spicy, aromatic dish is sure to set your taste buds aflame with its bold flavors and alluring aroma.
What is Pad Ka Prow?
Pad Ka Prow, also known as Thai Basil Stir-fry, is a classic Thai street food dish that combines a perfect balance of spicy, savory, and aromatic flavors. The dish’s name comes from its two main ingredients: “Pad” meaning “stir-fried” and “Ka Prow” referring to holy basil, a popular herb in Thai cuisine.
The key to a delicious Pad Ka Prow lies in its fresh and flavorful ingredients. Here are the main components of this delectable dish:
- Choice of protein: Chicken, beef, tofu, or jumbo shrimp
- Thai hot peppers: Known for their intense heat, these peppers pack a punch.
- Onions: Adding natural sweetness and crunch to the dish.
- Fresh crushed garlic: Enhancing the dish’s overall aroma and flavor profile.
- Garden basil leaves: Holy basil provides a unique flavor, distinct from sweet basil.
At CourtSide Thai, we pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients and authentic Thai spices to create an unforgettable Pad Ka Prow experience.
As you take your first bite of Pad Ka Prow, the heat from the Thai hot peppers hits you instantly, waking up your senses. The fragrant aroma of garlic and holy basil fills the air, creating an enticing scent that draws you in for more. The tender chicken, beef, tofu, or jumbo shrimp offer a delightful contrast to the fiery heat, while the onions provide a subtle sweetness that helps to balance the flavors.
To fully enjoy your Pad Ka Prow experience, we recommend pairing the dish with jasmine rice, which not only soaks up the flavorful sauce but also helps to tame the heat. For a refreshing complement to the spicy dish, try one of our Thai iced teas or our crisp cucumber salad.
