    This Thai chicken fried rice is deliciously spicy, but if you prefer your food milder, use less chillies. It's a great way of using up leftover rice. The star of the dish is the Thai sweet basil, it has a completely different flavour to Italian basil.

    This is classic Thai street food and is sure to bring back memories if you have ever eaten it. When frying the chillies, the all too familiar choking fragrance of the chillies is emitted from the kitchen. Serve on a bed of rice with a runny fried egg on top.

    A delicious red coconut curry, made by stir-frying beef with baby sweetcorn and green peppers. The heat of the curry is tamed by the creamy coconut milk. Serve with freshly cooked rice.
