Thai Flied Lice aka "Cow Pot Guy"

Saaaa Wat De Kha!!! Phuan Phuan
Tee Rak Na Kha!






Some of you guys might not really share my fascination for soap or candles; but you may really dig the following! I haven't been cooking much in my kitchen lately, so last night I got out my wok and went to town on an old dish I used to eat nearly everyday in Thailand!

Thai Chicken Fried Rice, affectionately called "Cow Pot Guy" in Thailand!

Here is what you will need:

Pot of rice, approximately 3 1/2 cups; cooked and cooled (I use brown; it works fine)

Cabbage, coursely chopped (about 1 1/2 cup)

Carrots, cut diagonally (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup)

White Onions

Green Onions

Garlic (duh!)

2 eggs, beaten

chicken, cooked or uncooked about 1 1/2 cups

fish sauce

ginger; fresh or powdered

green onions, whole with ends cut; enough for each person to have two

cucumber, 1 large cut diagonally in 1/3" slices

chopped peppers: jalapenos or real thai peppers

vinegar if desired

chopped peanuts, several tablespoons

wedges of lime already cut enough to give each person 2 wedges

Chopped, fresh cilantro

Cooking time: about 20 minutes if your rice and chicken is already cooked

You can go ahead and use those lovely delicatessen chickens and cut up if you prefer; or you can use chicken breasts, about 2. Slice these thinly and saute; set aside.

Saute the garlic and onions (i use about 1 small onion and about 3 medium cloves in olive oil until semi-translucent. Sprinkle in the ginger. Add the carrots and saute on high for about 1.5 minutes. Then add the cabbage; turn down heat to medium. Do not cover.

Add the cooked, cooled rice and the chicken, saute on medium heat and squirt in fish sauce and cook until rice is lightly browned. Fish sauce should very lightly moisten the whole batch.

Make a little hole in the bottom of your wok; pushing cooked ingredients up the sides of the wok and out of the fire. Add a tad more olive oil to the well; and quickly whisk two eggs together with more fish sauce; stir fry until cooked, then mix whole bunch together and continue to stir fry until thoroughly mixed. If desired, you may add one wedged tomato and continue to fry for about one minute.

Quickly call your family and put on plates. Place 2 wedges of lime; 2 green onions on the side as a garnish. Sprinkle top of dish with cilantro. You may if desired, slice the Thai peppers or jalapenos, and place in a cup with some fish sauce and vinegar for additional flavor.

I used crushed red pepper on top and then add the peanuts as the final topping for a really tasty, authentic and totally Thai dish!

This is a meal in itself, but you may also want to consider serving it with a small bowl of

Thom Yum Gung (Thai Hot Sour Shrimp Soup)

Thom Yum Guy (Thai Hot Sour Chicken Soup)

or Thom Kha Guy (a wonderful creamy chicken soup)

or even yet the green or red curried chicken dishes which Thai Kitchen produce really easy spice mixes for that all you do is add coconut cream milk and any number of meats or veggies to produce a wonderful curry!

A roy, mak mak, na kha!

Sa wat dee kha!

Enjoy friends!

fascinating recipe...sounds like it will feed us all week.

questions:
is the 3 1/2 cups of rice how much it measures after prepared or before it reaches the water?

also, what the heck is fish sauce?

thanks

When can we come over for dinner??? Sounds very different and interesting!!!

Is "cow pot guy" the english translation or the thai pronunciation?

katw0man said...

in truth it is
Cow pot guy.

Cow means rice
Pot means to fry
the Guy is the poor chicken who gave his life that you might eat.

There is no way to make my computer put the tones in here.

There are 5 ways to say cow.
Depending upon the tone you use, it could mean
a) white, the color
b) to enter
c) rice to eat
d) i forget
e) i also forget :( terrible)

Rice is pronounced in the 4th tone being falling. So it looks like going up a hill and down the other side. you say C o w. rising then falling like singing.

Pot and Guy are both low tones.

FYI TMI.

fish sauce. my dear clammy poo.

is dead fish
laying out
by the sea
in southern thailand
mixed with sea water
and dehydrated.

all so that they might complement your meal being the same component as our table salt and much much fishier! :)

there was no salt in thailand.
only fish sauce!!!!

i love it.

katw0man said...

oh, and it is cooked rice.

3 and one half cups

but i never measure anything anymore
unless it is lye/water solution

or if i am actually making a cake
from scratch and don't want to miss.

~*Beth*~ said...

katw0man said...

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've
had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
