Recipe #3 - Fried Rice

Everyone knows fried rice - either as a side dish or a main meal, depending on quantity and whats in it. My own version is very simple to make, tastes very genuine, and is 100% original.

Fried Rice

You will need:
  • Rice (variety of choice), about 200g per person
  • Peas
  • Bacon
  • One egg, lightly beaten
  • Soy sauce
  • Laos
  • Garlic
  • Cloves
  • Cinnamon
  • Fenugreek
For the rice, I have discovered this method which works every time:
  • In a saucepan, ass a teaspoonful of oil and heat it up a little.
  • Add the rice, and cook on a low heat for 2-3 minutes in the oil.
  • Add twice the amount of water as you have rice. Stir a little.
  • Simmer for 10-15 mins or until the water has almost completely boiled away.
  • Turn the heat off. Stir through and cover.
  • Leave for 15 mins, fluffing with a fork every 5 mins.
Then, for the rest do this:
  • Briefly cook the peas (ie boil them!)
  • Add a spoonful of oil to a large frypan or wok.
  • Lightly fry the bacon in a low to medium heat
  • Add a dash of soy sauce, a crushed garlic clove, a dash of cinnamon, half a teaspoon of laos, a couple of cloves, a quarter teaspoon of fenugreek, and a little chilli powder or chilli oil if desired.
  • Turn the heat to high, and add the rice.
  • Stir the mixture constantly - occasionally add a spoonful of water so its not too dry.
  • Add the peas.
  • After a few minutes, pour the beaten egg into the mixture and mix constantly. It will cook in under a minute.
  • Serve!
Very simple and very tasty. You can also try adding a few other things for more variety.
