Simple Fried Rice

One of my favourite dish is fried rice. It is quick and simple to make. I usually use whatever I have in the refrigerator. I don't use measurements because I cook by trial and error. I think you just have to use your judgement (agak) as to how much of each ingredient you need.

  • Rice (overnight and chilled in the refrigerator)
  • Oil
  • Prawns
  • Sambal (Chilli. optional)
  • Frozen peas and corn
  • Bacon or Barbeque Pork (or any meat you have)
  • Chopped Garlic
  • Eggs
  • Mustard green (choi sum) and/or beans sprout
  • Light Soya Sauce
  • Fish sauce
Heat oil in a wok (or non-stick pan.) Fry the garlic (and bacon if you are using) until garlic is brownish. Add the prawns and any meat and stir constantly until prawns and meat are nearly cooked. Add the rice followed by fish sauce and light soya sauce. Continue frying until the rice is well mixed in the sauces (ie a consistent colour.) Add the frozen peas & corn. Continue frying until the peas & corn is soft. Next, make a "hole" in the centre of the wok, add some oil and crack the eggs in the "hole". Mix the eggs around and when the egg is semi cooked, cover it with rice and leave for about 20 seconds. Then start frying. Add any green vegetables and fry for just a bit. Add the chilli and mix it in well. Lastly, add in beans sprout if you have any.
