Let’s say that when you are staying at home looking for a new job, you won’t be the happiest person in the world, and in these cases you need your own comfort food and one of my comfort food items is fried rice. It is true I am not originally from Far East Asia but Asian and Indian food comprises the largest percentage of my comfort food.
Anyway fried rice is a very easy dish to make, and lots of people love it as you can use all your leftovers. Leftover rice, meat or chicken, adding to it leftover steamed vegetables or fresh; both would be perfect. There are so many ways to cook it as every region and area has its own way and touch. But here I share my most favourite one.
Ingredients (4-5 servings):
- 20 g Vegetable oil
- 350 g (2 cups) Cooked white rice ( steamed, boiled) any would be good
- 2 pcs Meduim size carrot cut into julienne
- 1PC Zucchini cut into julienne
- 1PC Onion chopped
- 2 cloves Garlic roughly chopped
- 30 grams Premium dark soya sauce
- 20 grams Oyster sauce
- 10 grams Chinese spicy sauce
- 15 grams Sesame oil
- 1-2 Spring onions (scallions) roughly chopped
In a wok heat the vegetable oil, add in the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add in the garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes. Add in the carrots and zucchini and sauté for couple of minutes till preferred tenderness is reached, I prefer my vegetables crunchy so I only sauté for 2 minutes.
Add to the wok your cooked and cold rice and stir for a minute.
While sautéing add in your sauces. Keep tasting while cooking, the quantity of the sauces could be adjusted up to taste. When it is done drizzle the sesame oil over and garnish with the green onions.
