Thai Rice with Beansprouts

No ratings yet
Thai rice has a delicate fragrance that is delicious hot or cold. Sesame oil has a strong, nutty flavour and is used - for seasoning, marinating or flavouring rather than for cooking. Because the taste is so distinctive, sesame oil can be mixed with grapeseed or other light-flavoured oils.
