  • 3 pcs chilies, mix of red and green
  • 1 & 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 50 grams Thai Basil leaves (about 3/4 cup)
  • salt, for seasoning


  • Using a mortar & pestle, smash the garlic and the chilies until they’re soft (and a bit of paste). You can turn it into a fine paste texture if you prefer. 
  • Place wok over on medium-high heat and pour vegetable oil on wok.
  • Once oil is ready, add the smashed garlic and chilies. Cook for about a minute or until it becomes fragrant.
  • Add ground pork, soy sauce and sugar. Mix to combine. 
  • Once the meat is almost cooked, add Thai basil. Mix and taste. Add more salt if preferred.
  • Once meat is fully cooked, take pan off the heat.
  • Serve. Garnish with more Thai basil, if desired.
