''Tom Yum'' means ''sour and spicy''. It is a very common flavor that is found in several dishes in Asia. Here is a recipe that you will appreciate.


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 18 minutes

Cooling time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4

Difficulty: easy



60 ml (4 tbsp)  – Vegetable oil

1-2 tbsp.  – BURIRAM Tom Yum paste

24-30  – Peeled raw prawns

160g – Cherry tomatoes, cut in half

250g – Purple rice* cooked and cooled



2 – Limes cut into quarters

2 – Green onions, finely chopped

To taste – Cilantro, coarsely chopped



  • Heat the oil and BURIRAM Tom Yum paste in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add raw shrimps and cook for 1 minute or until cooked through.
  • Add the purple rice and cherry tomatoes while stirring regularly for 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve in a medium-deep bowl. Garnish with green onions, cilantro and a wedge of lime** to garnish.



Well-chilled rice contributes to the success of fried rice. Feel free to save time by cooking it ahead of time and storing it in the fridge.

* Our TOM YUM paste already contains the acidity of a lime, it is recommended to taste before adding more lime juice.

** It is possible to replace the purple rice with jasmine rice, which is easier to find in the grocery store.
