Khao Pad American stories

        American fried rice, also known as Khao Pad American, is a popular Thai dish. Despite the name “American,” the dish originated in Thailand. There is some evidence pointing to the origin of the recipe. Lady Sureephan Maneewat was interviewed by a Thai magazine and claimed that the cuisine was inspired by her experiences working as manager at the Rajthanee restaurant at Don Mueang International Airport. One day, it had an order from an international airline for a large breakfast and lunch in American style (fried egg, sausage, bacon, ketchup), but the flight was cancelled, so there was a lot of food left. She decides to use all ingredients by mixing all ingredients to create a new recipe in order to save resources. She brought ketchup to fry with rice and added raisins, and it was served with Fried Egg, Sausage, Bacon, and slid cucumber. When she was serving the menu to customers, an American soldier noticed her recipe and asked her what it was called; she decided to call it “American fried rice.” Everything that happened around 1954. However, the ingredients of American fried rice were unstable at the time, depending on the type of food left in each day.

       Another assumption is that American Fried Rice was created by a chef named “Kojak” who served American soldiers in Nakhon Ratchasima Province and The Ramasun Station in Udon Thani Province during the Vietnam War. Later, the recipe grew in popularity and was eventually distributed throughout the country. If this was true during the Vietnam War, which lasted from 1957 to 1975. The third assumption is based on the similarity of the ingredients to Mexican rice. Mexican rice is made by stir-frying rice with ketchup and comes with a variety of side dishes such as fried eggs, fried chicken, crispy bacon, and so on. The Mexican rice recipe first appeared in the daily recipes of the Newark Evening Star and Newark Advertiser in 1910. As a result, it is assumed that Mexican rice traveled to Thailand with American soldiers during the Cold War and eventually became the ancestor of American fried rice.
