Pad Ga-prao (Stir-fry Minced Meat with Basil Leaves) is one of the most common dishes in Thailand, using the strongly scented Basil leaves. You can cook this dish with Pork, Chicken or Beef using this recipe.

Kueh Pie Tee is a popular Peranakan dish in S’pore. It’s a thin & crispy pastry shell filled with spicy & sweet mixture of vegetables & prawns.

I decided to cook Pad Ga-prao with the Kueh Pie Tee shells that I'd bought. What a perfect way to entertain guests, with a different touch!
