1tablespoonfish sauce(substitute for soy sauce if not)
1cuppacked sweet basil leaves(40 g)
Put all ingredients in a mortar bowl and pound into a coarse paste using a pestle. Or you can simply use a chopper like this (my favourite chopper & grinder). Set aside
Heat a wok with some oil on medium high heat. Add in pounded paste and stir fry until it gets golden brown.
Now add in meat and the sauces, including sugar. Mix everything well and continue cooking until meat is fully cooked. Turn the heat off and add in sweet basils and mix until the leaves are wilted. Serve immediately.
How To Serve
Serve this delicious basil stir fry with some jasmine rice and fried egg.
Since it's served with rice which is usually bland, it's always a good practise to season your dish a bit more than you would if you were to eat it by itself only.
