Simple Fried Rice

Fried rice is a much-loved comfort food and I think it is also the world's favourite rice dish. A very versatile dish where you can add in whatever ingredients you fancy and the best dish to cook when you want to clear your leftovers in the fridge or freezer.  

(Serves 1)


1 cup of cooked rice (overnight)
2 eggs
barbeque pork (char siew)
frozen green peas
carrots (cubed)
capsicum (cubed)
minced garlic
shredded ginger (optional)
sliced shallots
a dash of chinese cooking wine
a dash of light sauce (to taste)
a dash of sesame oil

  • Heat oil and saute shallots, ginger and garlic.  Crack eggs into the wok and lightly scramble.  Remove from wok.  Set aside.
  • Add extra oil and sesame oil and stir fry char siew until heated through.  Add in carrots and capsicum.  Then add in rice, soy sauce and green peas.  Stir fry for about 1 minute then add in cooking wine, continue frying for another 2 - 3 minutes.  Add in the scrambled eggs.  Season with pepper.
  • Serve hot.
