“Ga Pow” is the Thai word for basil. This dish is basically stir-fried basil with the meat of your choice. Just another popular and delicious Thai food.
- 1 pound ground chicken
- 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
- 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
- 2 jalapenos
- 1/4 cup fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons palm sugar
- 1 cup basil leaves (or mint leaves)
- 1/2 bell pepper, cut into strips
- 1 teaspoon peppercorns
Directions:Grind the garlic, shallots, and peppercorns into a paste. Put the paste into a medium sized skillet, and stir-fry the paste for about 15 seconds. Add in the chicken and the remaining ingredients, and stir-fry for 3 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Serve either over rice, as a meal – or by itself “Ala Carte.”
