EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

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.

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.

Check the Asian growers at your local farmer's market for Thai basil or cinnamon basil to use instead of regular basil.
