Like all Thai food lovers, I’m obsessed. From Red to Green curry, Satay & Panang to Khao Soi, I’ve made and relished it all. When I heard of Pad Kaprow Gai or Pad Gra Pow, I was fascinated as I’m a huge fan of Basil. This dish compared to some of my other Thai dishes is very easy to put together and does not use a lot of ingredients.
