Chinese Fried Rice

chinese fried riceFried rice is an easy all-in-one meal that everybody can make. Especially Chinese Fried Rice. When I make it, I would use minimum ingredients with no meat or seafood. Just rice, mixed veggies and egg. Well, maybe some oil for frying, garlic and salt and pepper to taste too. Now, how can you not say that it is the easiest meal to make?

Yet as simple and easy as it is, I hardly ever made them. I am not sure why but maybe because when I cook white rice, I just do not cook extra and since I am the only one eating it, there is hardly ever any rice left that is enough to make fried rice. Until recently of course. I reminded myself to cook extra rice since it has been a while that I have homemade fried rice.

1. In a frying pan, heat the oil and saute the garlic.

2. Add the mixed veggie and cook until they are soft. Add in the rice together with sliced onion, salt, sugar and white pepper. Stir well.

3. In a small bowl, break the eggs and whisk a little and add into the pan. Stir until the egg mixed well with the rice. Serve immediately.

Fried rice is the easiet menu to prepare especially when you're not in the mood to cook but your tummy is growling! It's not only easy but fast to prepare and yummy to eat....

A drop or two of sesame oil would enhance the taste too.

Cath, masa kat KL dulu I memang selalu masak chinese style esp noodle. Now susah nak cari the right kinda noodle so kurang lah.

Syana, amboi 2 bulan tak makan nasi? I wonder if i can do tht. lol.

Jo, chinese fried rice is easy to make. Id suggest you use basmathi rice for it since the texture is harder than regular jasmine rice. :)
