btw, a tip for this or any Thai dishes.
I was watching Two Hot Tamales and they said a very traditional Thai method
in this is not only to stirfry the garlic (and I would throw in a hot dried
thai pepper as well) but also a few thai basil leaves in the hot oil as
well, until they are crispy. This infuses the oil with the flavor of the
basil which in turn infuses the food, and then you can garnish the dish
with that and fresh lime slices. The idea of crispy thai basil is
intriquing as well!
