Stir-fried pork with holy basil (pad ka praw)

Pad ka praw (ผัดกะเพรา) also popular for Thai people. Because when we don't know what we're going to eat we'll order this. Traditional served on rice garnish with some slices cucumbers, but almost people will order this with fried egg also. I think this should be great for lunch because it has hot flavor which can give you refreshing and give you an energy to continue working in afternoon.
In this recipe we'll use Holy basil, or sometimes it's call Hot basil. Holy basil is different from Italy basil. Holy basil give you hot flavor but Italy basil will give you a sweet flavor. Anyway if you can't find holy basil you can substitude this with Italy basil :)

  • Thai red chili - as much as you like
