Kal Pot

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This easy one-pot dish from Thailand gets its unique flavor from a subtle dash of fish sauce, available in most grocery stores. Sauteed pork and onions are combined with tomatoes, egg and cooked rice. Just a touch of fish sauce makes the dish come alive.

INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):


  • In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Add pork and onion and stir-fry until done and no pink is showing. Stir in tomatoes and steam until tomatoes are semi-soft. Remove from heat and stir in the cooked rice. Add the fish sauce and beaten egg and stir well; the egg will thicken the mixture. Then it is Kal Pot and ready to serve!
