Dressed Nut Rice ( Kao Pat Tan-ya-puid )


This rice is a typical rice dish, made with lotus nuts and dried Chinese herbs. It's typical in Thailand to pad rice with dressings to make it more interesting as a daily food, as you can see with the tomatoes and rolled egg in the photograph. Don't worry if you can't find all the herbs, the most important one for this recipe is lotus nuts, and you can usually buy Chinese herbs in packets, so simply choose a blend that includes lotus nuts.
